Cucumber Watermelon & Mint Infused Water
One of the best parts about summer (especially here in Idaho!) are the refreshing summer drinks! I try to get creative while keeping it healthy. This Cucumber Watermelon & Mint Infused Water is the perfect combination of “ahhhhh!” and “mmmmmmmm!” with no regrets or added sugars to make you feel yucky after the initial refreshment wears off. It also happens to be lovely to look at, so it’s really fun for BBQs and parties as well!
One 16 oz. canning jar
4-5 small chunks of fresh watermelon
1⁄2 of a medium size cucumber, cut into slices
1⁄4 cup of fresh mint leaves
#1. Add the cucumber slices, watermelon chunks and fresh mint leaves to your 16 oz. canning jar. Rip the leaves in half for more flavor. Next, use a spoon or a fork to gently mash the fruit down a little bit. This will let the juice out of the fruit to infuse your water.
#2. Fill the jar with water, place the cover on, give it a good shake and refrigerate overnight for the best flavor.
*Makes 2 servings. One 16 oz. jar = 2 servings
**If you’d prefer to use a larger or smaller canning jar, simply double or triple the recipe ingredients and refrigerate overnight.
