Cucumber water has been around for a very long time – years before the infused water craze began.

Water with cucumber has been served at day spas and health clubs all over the world for decades, mostly due to its health benefits and great taste.

Not only is this simple recipe yummy, but cucumbers look oh so pretty when sliced and placed neatly in a pitcher of water and ice.

In this article, we’ll discuss the benefits of cucumber water, and I’ve also included a simple cucumber water recipe.

How to Make Cucumber Water

Making cucumber water is pretty simple:

Slice a cleaned, peeled (or unpeeled depending on your preference) cucumber into 1/2 inch slices.
Combine cucumber slices in water, and type with ice. Allow marinating for at least an hour. (For best results, allow it to marinate overnight in the refrigerator.)

The cucumber slices will float, so it’s important to top with ice to keep them submerged.

To avoid having to use ice, try purchasing a fruit-infused water pitcher that holds the cucumber slices in an infusion chamber. They work great, the large pitchers look fantastic on a dinner table and encourage your family to drink more water, and the travel bottles help keep you hydrated all day long.

You can refill the pitcher or travel bottle several times before it starts to lose flavor.

You can even eat the cucumber slices if you like, but discard your batch after 24 hours.
