1 cucumber, sliced and unpeeled
6-7 cucumber slices for decoration
1 1/2 to 2 liters of water
3 mint sprigs
2 mint sprigs for decoration
Half a lemon, sliced and unpeeled
In a pitcher, mix the water, cucumber, 3 mint sprigs and lemon. Let it rest on the fridge for 24 hours. If you prepare the water at the last minute, cut the first cucumber in three or four pieces. Then, squeeze the cucumber pieces to release all the juice.
Before serving remove the cucumber slices used to flavor the water. Then stir with a wooden spoon, add some ice cubes, 6 or 7 fresh cucumber slices and the remaining 2 mint sprigs. Now enjoy!
Yay, October is finally here! My favorite month of the year! Halloween is like my Christmas, we celebrate 3 birthdays during the month, lots of family gatherings, and the weather finally gets a bit cooler. With pumpkins being in season this time of year, I take full advantage and offer a facial with autumn ingredients. Be sure if you are in the San Antonio area to book a Pumpkin Cheesecake Facial
or one of my other pumpkin spa treatments.
