  2. What a great post! I happened to have some fresh from the garden cucumber to use up so I hopped up and made the cucumber lime combo right away. It was delicious and SO refreshing. Thanks for sharing!

  3. These all sound amazing! I’ve pinned to try later this summer.
    Thank you for sharing this at Brag About It Link Party on VMG206.

  4. Limes are so healthy! I always keep some on hand even in the freezer! Sometimes I throw other fruits such as orange slices and lemon slices in the pitcher as well. And if you roll the lime or lemon on the cupboard first before slicing, it’s so much easier to squeeze the juice out before slicing and adding them to the pitcher! Often there is so much extra flavour added that I don’t have to add any sugar. Thank you for sharing your recipes!

  5. I’m one of the crazy people that drinks a gallon of water a day! So these water recipes are beyond fabulous! Definitely pinning so I can try these out!

  6. Such delicious recipes, I want to make some this summer. It is alreading getting so hot here in the UK so would be nice to have some non-alcoholic refreshers like these

  7. I like flavor drinks like this since it adds the fruity taste but doesn’t overwhelm the taste of water too much. This is definitely a great thirst quencher.

  8. These are amazing thirst-quenchers! I love that you suggested sugar alternatives as this is best for those who are conscious of their sugar level particularly to those who have diabetes. I also noticed that nowadays people are more conscious of what they eat/drink.

  9. These look so refreshing and delicious. I definitely have to make the cucumber one for Memorial Day this weekend.

  10. I love summer drinks. I tried one last summer with watermelon oh so good. Now I have had cucumber in my drinks but they turned out bitter so I am skeptical but may give it another go round this summer

    I absolutely love fruit infused waters. They are so tasty and refreshing in the summer time!
