Who doesn’t love a tall glass of ice water with freshly cut cucumber slices in it? Well if your cukes aren’t ripe just yet, you don’t have to wait all summer to get creative! You can flavor water with just about anything that’s edible and in season in your garden – from fruit and veggies to herbs and even edible flowers!
Here is a recipe sure to keep you cool, and it may help you relax and unwind after a stressful work day or a long afternoon battling the weeds.
Slice one lemon and toss a few lavender sprigs into a pitcher of water and chill it in the refrigerator. The lemon and lavender can be used a few times by just refilling your pitcher for about two days. Enjoy!
If lavender isn’t your cup of tea, try basil, sage or lemon balm – just as tasty! Got a fun recipe? Let us know in the comments section below.
