Cucumber, Melon, Lemon and Lime-Infused Water

July 12, 2013 | Filed Under Infused Water 


I recently made my own citrus-infused water, for the very first time.  I made orange and lemon-infused water.  It was very refreshing and perfect to drink during the horrid heatwave we’ve been having.  So, now I’m on an infused-water-making-roll!   WooHoo!  I made it again and this time, I decided to use cucumbers, melons, lemons and lime.   I filled half of the pitcher (and mason jars) with the ingredients and added cold water.  Then, I let it sit and infuse, in the fridge for at least 2- 4 hours.   I’m hooked on infused water.  It’s simply fun to make and a joy to drink.  I did not use any type of sweetner.  It’s not needed.   However, I suppose you can use it, if you want.   I look forward to making more fruit, herb, and vegetable-infused drinks for the rest of the summer.   I think next, I’ll try watermelon and cilantro!   If you have any suggestions, please tell me.

On another note, I’ll be taking a short break from blogging here.  So, I’ll see you in a couple of weeks.  Keep having a good summer, everyone.  If your neck of the woods is as hot as it’s been in New York City, make some infused water of your choice.  It will certainly help you keep cool in the heat.

  9. Great idea! Sometimes I like to drink something other than plain old water.

    Here is Estonia jugs of water with something added are quite common at catered events. Try slicing the cucumber in long thin slices which maximizes the surface area.

  11. I heard about the heat wave, this is the perfect thing to drink. Cucumber + lime water is good for those that would like to lose a little weight. Enjoy your break.

    Un saludo

  13. I agree with Pene – flavoured waters are all the rage during the last few years. I love cucumber + lime/lemon myself, but also add cranberries or lingonberries quite often.

  14. Hi Pille! Nice to see you here. I learned about lingonberries from you! :-)

    Paz ox
