Homemade Spa Water

This summer, instead of sugary juice drinks, try this refreshing water luxuriously flavoured with mint, lemon, cucumber and ginger. Keep a pitcher in your fridge and drink as much as you want, up to one recipe a day.

Sassy Water
(recipe from The Flat Belly Diet)

2 litres water (about 8 1/2 cups)
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
1 medium cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced (I use a vegetable peeler to get nice long slivers, then discard the middle part with all the seeds.)
1 medium lemon, thinly sliced
12 mint leaves

Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher, then chill in the fridge for a few hours or overnight to blend flavours.
