Instructions — 10 minutes
RINSE the strawberries, cucumber and fresh mint leaves. Use the knife and cutting board to cut the cucumber, strawberries and limes into semi-thin slices. We used a mandolin to cut each slice evenly, but using a knife is also perfectly fine. LAYER the strawberries, cucumber and lime slices along with mine leaves in each water carafe. Add ice cubes somewhere in between, then fill with fresh cold water.
We used plain cold tap water to fill the 3 water carafe. If you live in an area where tap water is non drinkable, use bottled water instead. You can give this recipe a twist by using carbonated water instead of regular water. You can refrigerate the strawberry, cucumber, lime and mint water for up to 2 days. The longer the water sits, the stronger the flavor. We found that refilling 3 times is about the max, you can check this by looking at the strawberries. They get translucent when out of flavor.
