On a recent vacation, the hotel we were staying in put out two tall gorgeous glass water dispensers in their lobby and let me tell you--water never looked and tasted so good.
Each day the dispensers were packed with ice and water and either lemon and lime slices or cucumber slices or orange slices with cherries. Each flavor was as refreshing as it was beautiful.
You can make your own fancy water at home in two quick steps:
Step #1 Fill a 12-cup glass pitcher with 6 cups of ice and 2-3 cups of either: * sliced cucumbers * lemon and/or lime slices * 2 cups orange slices with 1 cup pitted cherries (maraschino can be substituted if desired)
Step #2 Fill the pitcher with water
Keep this colorful and flavorful water pitcher as a center piece on your dinner or buffet table!
My favorite breakfast place in town adds cucumbers to their water. Last night as I sliced cucumbers for a sandwich, I added some to a refillable water bottle fresh out of the dishwasher. I ended up drinking it all down later in the evening and refilling. I am back to drinking it today.
