Spa Water

There is no surprise more magical than the surprise of being loved. It is God's finger on man's shoulder. ~Charles Morgan

When the weather is hot, don't we all appreciated simplicity in a way that escapes us on winter days? We need to stay hydrated both for physical health and beauty.


This summer in particular, I find we are all looking for refreshments that are light, refreshing, and inexpensive.

At an interview on the history of Diamond Bar, long time community activist Sue Sisk served me this spa water that her massage therapist introduced to her. It is simply


In a crystal pitcher add a handful each of 
  • Mint
  • Cucumber
  • Lemon
Gently pour ice cold filtered water and allow to steep. Refill with more water as needed.

I could not get enough. I can't wait to serve to Gerry. It is so good in and of itself, I'm looking for company to fix it for.

Lydia,

I had to laugh when you first talked about drinking "spa water"! My thought was the spa in your backyard! LOL Oh that looked yummy and refreshing! It reminded me of a southern beverage with the mint.

Trisha- I promise not to serve any water from the hot tub):-

OOLH- Sweet Lady Jane's it is.

Poppy- You will LOVE how it will quench your thirst on a really hot day. Rescued me after working in the garden until the temp tipped just above 97 degrees.
