Listen up ladies, why not create your own Sweet Spa Water treat this summer? Cucumber spa water can easily be concocted in your own home with only a few simple ingredients that you already have on hand. These natural herbs and fruits have pleasant aromatics that can help you relax and soak up that sun towards the end of this summer and get sexier.
In a 2 quart pitcher, combine the ingredients as follows:
12 thin slices of cucumber ** unwaxed cucumber—organic is perfect
5 -1” cubes of honeydew melon, skin removed
1 bunch mint, torn off and tossed into the water
6 cups chilled, still spring or mineral water for a fizzy treat!
** Add in fresh basil or lavender, orange slices, or even some simple syrup for an even sweeter treat!
1- Place the cucumber, the peeled honeydew melon, and a handful of fresh mint into a large pitcher.
2- Fill pitcher with water. Cover and chill for a few hours before guests arrive or serving.
3- You have the option to strain the mixture and discard solids, or do what I do, and use the infused spa water as a visual treat, and have a strainer on the spout/lid. Pour water into gorgeous, tall, clear glasses, with big ice cubes , and for a real refreshing treat, add more mint and even a few thin slices of cucumber on the brim of the glass for garnish. Fancy!
** Super low in calories. Great for hydration. You can really WOW your guests this summer with a real refreshing and easy treat! Save that melon and cucumber for a little bite at the end too!
