Infused Water Recipe #2

infused

This infused water recipe has its foundation from a signature cocktail served up at Oceana in Condado, Puerto Rico called the “Nolita,” we want to give credit where credit is due!  The cocktail was very refreshing on a warm, tropical evening and a few elements of the drink would make very sip-worthy water on hot summer days.

Ingredients:

  • 1 sliced cucumber
  • Sprigs of fresh mint
  • 1 sliced lime
  • 1 cup of pineapple juice
  • Water

Use a large, one gallon pitcher and fill almost to the top with water.  Add the cucumber, mint and lime and let the flavors infuse for a couple of hours.  Stir in the pineapple juice and pour yourself a glass over ice!

Pineapple contains bromelain, which reduces inflammation.  Cucumbers have B vitamins, which are good for a whole host of health reasons, but cucumbers also add tremendous flavor to the water.

Keep cool and hydrated in a flavorful way!
