OPTIONAL FLAVORS

Cucumber-Lemon
Add 1-2 lemons, thinly sliced.
Cucumber-Lime
Same as lemon, but with the zip of lime flavor (I love lime!).

Add 10-12 sprigs of fresh mint. Mint is especially cooling for the summertime.
Cooling Mojito
Combine the mint and lime for a mojito flavored cucumber water recipe!
