Rejuvenate and refresh without stepping foot inside a spa. This recipe for Cucumber Melon Spa Water from chef and author Candice Kumai is a hydrating treat.
Cucumber Melon Spa Water
12 thin slices cucumber ** unwaxed cucumber-organic is perfect
5 -1″ cubes of honeydew melon, skin removed
1 bunch mint, torn off, and tossed into the water
6 cups chilled still spring (or mineral water for a fizzy treat)
** Add in fresh basil, or even lavender, orange slices or even some simple syrup for an even sweeter treat!
1. Place the cucumber, the peeled honeydew melon, and a handful of fresh mint into your pitcher
2. Fill pitcher with water. Cover and chill for a few hours before guests arrive.
3. You have the option to strain the mixture and discard solids, or use the infused spa water as a visual treat, and have a strainer on the spout/lid. Pour water into gorgeous, tall, clear glasses, with big ice cubes for a real refreshing treat, add more mint and even a few thin slices of cucumber on the brim of the glass for garnish. Fancy!
