Refreshing & thirst quenching Lemon Basil Cucumber Infused Water.
Drink up your water! That’s what we hear all the time these days, staying hydrated is important for general body health and well being. It’s nice to have a few fun ideas up your sleeve to make that jug of water a bit more interesting!
I love drinking water and it’s pretty much all I drink every day apart from the odd cup of green tea or spiced infusion. BUT every now and then I feel like something cold and refreshing that has a bit of flavour to it and that’s when I’ll whip up an infused water like this Lemon Basil Cucumber Infused Water! It’s especially delicious on a hot summers day when you need a little pick me up.
Great for a party or get together – your guests will love this idea, especially those who prefer a less sweet drink option – this is a great quick & easy go to recipe.
Pile on the ice cubes for an icy cold beverage by the pool, I like to make a big jug of this infused water and sip away on it all day. The flavours get more intense as the hours go by, and it becomes more and more yummy.
For a pop of colour you can add some strawberries or watermelon to this water…this looks so pretty and inviting!!
Why not skip on through to the kitchen and make a batch right now!! It’s so quick and easy you’ll be sipping on this happy drink in no time at all. Don’t forget to let me know what you think!
