Cucumber, Lemon & Basil Water

Just thought with the recent spell of good weather I'd share something I love to have in the fridge for warm days. This is a really refreshing slightly tangy savoury drink that's great served over ice on a hot summer day. It's also 100% healthy.

Image

Approx 1.5L - 2L water
7 thin slices Cucumber
1/3 lemon inc rind, sliced.
4 fresh basil leaves

Image

Combine in a jug/bowl and leave in the fridge overnight (a minimum of 2 hours if you need it on the day.) It's good for at least 3 days in the fridge, but take the ingredients out after 48 hours if you want to keep it longer to stop them going mushy. Bear in mind it's a fresh drink with no preservatives so it will turn quite quickly compared to commercial lemonade, juices etc.

Cheers!

I had a water with cucumber in at a restaurant last Saturday. I'd never had it before and was surprised how much one slice flavoured the whole glass. So much so that I took a swig out the bottle to make sure the water didn't already taste of cucumber. :shock:

Have you ever tasted Hendricks gin. It is made from cucumber. Really nice taste.

Abv free LeeH, we're in the non brewed beverages section, but this would be great as mentioned with gin, vodka or white rum, or mixed with lemonade and spirits :)
