There are a lot of benefits to drinking cucumber water, besides it being refreshing!! Here are a couple articles that list the benefits:
When I make mine, I cut thin slices of an organic english cucumber and place half in the pitcher and the other half in a tupperware to either snack on or wait for the next batch of water. And then optional- you can cut thin slices of a lime as well. I put the whole lime in there- gives it a nice flavor!
