My own take on "Sassy Water"

June 11, 2017


After weeks and weeks of rain, it is SO nice to finally be able to sit outside and enjoy my patio.  I haven't been able to wipe the smile off my face this entire weekend - it's just so gorgeous outside. 


This morning I woke up bright and early and decided to put together a pitcher of refreshing "Sassy Water" to enjoy all day while we are out on the patio.  I first discovered this water recipe years ago in college in a cook book I had called "the Flat Belly Diet."  There are a bunch of things I still make from that cookbook all these years later, and this is one of them. 


I've modified the recipe slightly just to suit my own tastes - my advice is make it how you like it! If you like a really bold flavor, up the number of ingredients you include.  If you're like me and you just like a splash of flavor, then use my recipe below!


1 lemon, sliced

3 sprigs mint leaves

1 heaping teaspoon of grated ginger

1 small cucumber, sliced

1 gallon water



....put all that stuff above in the water! That's it!! One tip, I clap the mint leaves between the palms of my hands before i throw them in there to really bring out that minty flavor.  I learned that one on bar rescue ;)  Also - try not to eat all the cucumbers before you put them in the water.


This has got to be the most refreshing water I have ever sipped.  Do you have any great water recipes? (That feels like a weird question to ask. Who has recipes for water? You know what I mean.) Share them in the comments below!


Now it's time to hydrate, relax, and enjoy this beautiful day.
