- 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.
