x We’ve all heard how important it is to stay hydrated, but let’s be honest – how many of us actually get the recommended 64 ounces of water per day? I’m going to show you a quick and easy recipe that tastes great, it’s gong to make you want to drink all the water you can, and it will also impress your friends! Today I’m going to show you my version of spa water. Now If you’ve ever stayed at a nice hotel or gone to a resort, you may have had something similar. Let me show you how easy it is. First you get a simple pitcher of water – filtered water is best. And really, the base of it is: lemon, cucumber and mint, but we’re going to add a few extra items. When I make this, I like to start off with a few slices of cucumber, followed by a few lemon slices. When I’ve gone to the spa, this is usually what it consists of is: lemon and cucumber and mint. We can put a little mint in there – the fresh mint has wonderful aroma and the oil just infuses with the water. But not only can you just have this basic recipe, but it’s wonderful to use other fruit that’s in season – I’ve got some blood oranges here. It’s always great to add berries – they add antioxidants to the mixture and also a lot of great flavor. And by the way, you can use any fruit that’s in season. After it’s chilled for about an hour, it’s ready to serve. And if you’re having friends over, you can make it even a little more fun by adding a nice garnish of mint and lemon. I’m Nancy Newcomer.
