Cucumber Water

There’s not really a recipe for this. Just combine some thinly sliced cucumber (peeled if it’s from a store), thinly sliced lemon, peeled and thinly sliced fresh ginger, and a few mint leaves in a pitcher and fill it with water. Recipes range from 4 slices of cucumber and lemon in a gallon of water to a whole cucumber and a whole lemon in half a gallon. I usually make it in a 2-quart pitcher and use about 2” of cucumber and half a lemon. I make up a pitcher of it, pour some out into a glass with ice cubes, and put the rest in the fridge until I’m ready for it. I don’t like it if it’s left overnight; something goes off with the flavor. But some recipes say to refrigerate it overnight.
