The Easy Way to Make Cucumber Water

You have probably noticed that warmer weather calls for certain kinds of beverages to enjoy.

Like cocoa is to winter, certain beverages are to summer. Am I right??

  The Easy Way to Make Cucumber Water

A few weeks ago I was checking into a hotel and there in the lobby was this beverage container filled with the most amazing cucumber water that I have ever tasted.
I had to ask for the recipe!



Cucumber water is a refreshing and virtually calorie-free beverage. Not much can beat a cold glass of cucumber water on a hot day!

Have you tried cucumber water?

Infused water is a popular and healthy beverage. People add strawberries, cucumbers, and even oranges to their water for a bit of flavoring. Flavor infused water is a great way to get your daily water in especially, if you are someone watching what you are eating- like I am.

Cucumbers remind me of a summer luncheon or picnic.

Cucumbers just seem to be cooling and refreshing- something that I like on a warm day. It is easy to plan a nice picnic lunch with cucumber water.

This recipe is for a half gallon of cucumber water.

To make a gallon of cucumber water, simply double the recipe. To make a quart, split the recipe in half.

You can jazz this recipe up a bit by adding optional items such as fresh mint or fruit (lemon, strawberry, orange etc). Club soda, lemon-lime soda or seltzer instead of plain water is another way to make this cucumber water a bit better.

The recipe for cucumber water


Ingredients:

  • 1 medium cucumber, scrubbed. Can use 3-4 (depending on size) mini cucumbers
  • 1/2 gallon (2 quarts) Water- see above
  • Ice- amount as desired
  • Any of the optional items listed above.

How to make this:


  • Cut off the ends of your cucumber and discard them.
  • Using a peeler, peel 4 strips off of the cucumber. Start from the top of the cucumber and peel all the way down, The strips should be equally distant from one another, leaving the cucumber's dark green skin between them.
  • Slice the cucumber horizontally into 2 halves.
  • Slice each half horizontally into 1/4-1/2" wide slices.
  • If you are wanting to remove the seeds from the cucumber so that there are no seeds in the drink, you can cut them out of each slice at this point.
  • Add your sliced cucumbers to your pitcher/container.
  • Pour your ice over the cucumbers or save the ice for serving if serving longer than a few hours away.
  • Add any optional items.
  • Fill the remainder of the pitcher with your water.
  • Allow the water to set for at least an hour to infuse the flavors together. Serve with ice if desired.
