Cucumber Melon Drink

Cucumber Melon Drink-1-6Summer time is the best time for refreshing beverages. Drinking enough water is so important all year long. I am a big believer that if you drink enough water, you will feel SO much better and avoid lots of headaches and other unpleasant health maladies.

Even though we drink water 98% if the time, sometimes it’s nice to change things up  and mix up a concoction. We love Mint Lemonade, Raspberry Peach Iced Tea and flavored water. Flavored water is a really easy way to add some flavor and eye appeal to the most basic beverage. We love adding berries, mint and citrus to water and this time I decided to use a combination of cucumber and melon.

If you’re not a fan of regular water and it seems too boring and plain for you, give this a try. If you just like delicious, thirst quenching drinks, this one is perfect for you too. 

Ingredients:

1/2 English cucumber, sliced

1/2 honeydew melon (about 2 1/2 -3 cups thin slices of melon)(WITH the juice)

6-8 cups water

sugar to taste, optional

Instructions:

Cucumber Melon Drink-1-10Scoop the seeds out of the melon.

Cut wedges of melon and use a vegetable peeler to to get long strips of melon. Do this over a bowl, so you can save all the juices that will drip off when you are cutting into the melon. Cucumber Melon Drink-1-9Place the melon strips, with the juice into a pitcher. Cucumber Melon Drink-1-8Add the slices of cucumber. Cucumber Melon Drink-1-7Pour in the water. Add sugar to taste, if you want to make it sweet. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator up to 24 hours. Cucumber Melon Drink-1-6

    Thanks for sharing. Anyone who has never tried adding natural flavor to their water should make it. You will not be disappointed. My husband and I first experienced this kind of drink at a lovely hotel, they made a huge thing of this and put it in the lobby for the guests. My husband and I kept coming back for this water, it was soo good. What they also did was add ice in there too. Melon and cucumbers were the most flavorful I think and our favorite. Then there was strawberry one, lemon, and many other combinations they did.

    This drink looks wonderful! I can drink water all day without any flavoring but always love any healthy drinks!
