Refreshing Spa Water or Infused Alcohol

For source of image go |here

When I was in Jamaica on vacation, my girlfriends and I went to the spa (‘Cause thats what we do on vacay…)  When there, my masseuse handed me some water that had a Hint of cucumber and I couldn’t help but to ask her how it was made.  

I thought it was silly to ask because I knew the basic principle.  which is, you cut up slices of your favorite fruit and put it into water and serve. That is basically what she told me. But I knew there had to be more to it. I had unanswered question. 

I didn’t know how long or if there was a special technique. These were things I knew were important,  so, I did some digging and found this recipe (for vodka) which I am happy with. The process of infusing should be the same, in theory, for water (for the most part).

Now, I can have spa water at home- anytime!

You can also used different fruits for your spa water.  However, the cucumber is most refreshing.  

Cucumber Water

1 medium cucumber
1 750-ml bottle water

Directions

Peel the cucumber. Cut it in half, and scoop the seeds out with a spoon. Discard the seeds and skins. Cut the cucumber into chunks, and put in a glass or other non-reactive container (about 1.5 liter). Pour the water over. Seal, and give it a shake. Store in a cool, dark place, shaking daily, for 3-7 days (1-2 days for softer fruits), until it reaches the flavor you want. Strain with a coffee filter, and pour into a sealable bottle.
