Ingredients

6 cups water   1.5 L
1 cucumbers, medium size, pelled, than cut into rounds   260 g

Method

  1. Peel than slice the cucumber into thin rounds. Put the cucumber slices in a pitcher with the water. Cucumber slices will float, so if you desire a stronger infusion put a weight on top of the cucumbers to keep them below the surface of the water.
  2. For best results, chill for at least 2 hours before serving so the flavour will infuse the water. Allowing the water to steep overnight will make for a more strongly flavored drink. Stir it gently before serving.

Remarks

May be stored 2 days in the refrigerator.
