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.
- 1 sliced cucumber
- Sprigs of fresh mint
- 1 sliced lime
- 1 cup of pineapple juice
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!
