Cucumber Lemon Basil Water

Posted under Drinks


  • 3 cups sliced cucumber
  • 2 medium lemons
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil
  • 1 gallon water

Rinse and scrub the cucumbers and lemons. Slice each thinly before adding them
to a large pitcher.
Rinse basil and add to the pitcher.
Add water and let steep at least 30 minutes before drinking.
Note: Unless you are draining and refilling the pitcher, do not let lemon or basil
steep for more than 4 hours as it can make the water taste too bitter or potent.
