This lightly sweetened cucumber-flavored water is enhanced with fresh mint and a touch of lemon juice; a DIY (and healthier) version of the flavored waters that are all the rage.
Meanwhile, in a blender, purée the cucumber with 2 cups cold water. Strain the cucumber liquid and mint liquid through a fine strainer into a large bowl; discard the solids. Pour the liquid into a large pitcher. Add the lemon juice and 3 cups cold water; stir to combine. Serve over ice.

I have made this twice now and both time it has been a big hit! Very refreshing, second time I doubled the batch. I probably use more mint than called for just because I don't measure and have lots in my container on the deck.
