    I was just looking at herbal waters at Whole Foods last week. I was intrigued and thought to myself this could be really good or really weird. I put them back on the shelf. I’ve got a batch of your recipe steeping on the counter right now. I’ll let you know how it turns out for me.

    What a great idea! I love water and was told to stop drinking so much because I’m washing the salts out but… this just sounds too good!

    My two favorite things mixed together herbs and water! Can’t go wrong with that one!

    How refreshing! Another great way to use up cucumbers. :)

    I’ve done something similar here off and on during this summer. My M-I-L gave me a cool pitcher that has it’s spout at the bottom and I just leave it in the fridge and open spout into our glassess! I have been playing around with different combos of herbs and fruits. Want to try this one for sure.
    PS Rhiannon said she is so excited to be working with you!! ;0)

    After four hours of steeping in the fridge, this stuff is really good and really weird. It is so refreshing and cooling after running in and out of 90 plus temps. The cucumbers were from the garden and they are so sweet right now. It’s almost like eating though with all those flavors. I could get used to this!

    For some reason, I kept wanting to read this as “cucumber basil holy water” lol.

    I love making flavored waters like these too— one of my favorites the last few years has been vetiver water that I make every summer. I had a small plant indoors for decor, and a large vetiver grass plant outside that I would use as a “mother”. Every summer I’d dig up the roots, then steep overnight in a large pot of water. It is a traditional drink in India where this grass grows natively.
    Sadly, both my plants died this past year; the outside one couldn’t handle the unusually heavy winter we had, and my kitten destroyed the indoor one :-(

    Sparkling or tonic water with a mint medley (orange mint, pineapple mint, spearmint, etc, or whatever combo you want) is also quite lovely, as you described :)

    This sounds really great, Amy! I’ve been bored with water of late, but have still wanted to drink something healthy and refreshing … this is just the ticket–thanks!

    Awww, this is such a great idea Amy! I think I might try it with all of the spearmint I have growing in my garden right now! Looks so refreshing. :)

    Such a refreshing way to drink water! I know what you mean about needing something different sometimes. Do you know about kefir water? That is what we started with, and it is not only delicious (we make it with maple) but full of probiotic goodness. But flavored water is a wonderful idea too!

    For those who have a history of gall stones, be careful of ginger…it can trigger an attack. Otherwise, for me, this sounds AMAZING!!

    Your herbal water sounds refreshing! I think it would be the perfect treat to put in my daughter’s water bottle.
