Recently I visited the Austin Springs Spa in Johnsonville, Tennessee.
During my stay I was offered a variety of spa waters for relaxation and rehydration. The cucumber water was my favorite, clean-tasting and refreshing.
Spa waters can be made from a variety of fresh ingredients-
Fruits and vegetables: slices of lemon, orange, grapefruit, lime, honeydew melon, or cucumber.
Herbs: sprigs of mint or rosemary, slightly crushed; slices of ginger root.
Cucumber water would be a perfect beverage for a wedding shower, bachelorette party, or any summer celebration.
Refreshing Cucumber Water
8 cups of water, chilled (still spring or mineral water is best)
1 large cucumber, sliced
Float thin rounds of cucumber in a pitcher of chilled water several hours or overnight. Serve slightly chilled. Place a cucumber slice in each glass before serving.
Here's two more spa water recipes you might like- one from Chef Scott Leibfried and one from MyRecipes.com. *smile*
