Lemon Cucumber Thyme Water

This weekend we celebrated a beautiful sunny Mother’s Day by throwing a little backyard brunch for ourselves.  One of the most simple but delicious things on the menu at the brunch was this Lemon Cucumber Thyme water.

Honestly you don’t even need a recipe for this baby. 

It’s easy – just slice a lemon and a small cucumber into a glass pitcher, add fresh thyme sprigs, cover in ice and then fill with water.  The longer this sits on the table as you linger over coffee and second servings of french toast with mascarpone & rhubarb compote, the most herbal and delicious it becomes.  Just keep topping it off with ice to maximize refreshment. 

Lemon Cucumber Thyme Water

  • One lemon, sliced thinly
  • One small cucumber, sliced
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • approx 2 liters water
  • lots of ice

Slice the lemon & cucumber into a glass pitcher. Toss in the thyme sprigs.  Cover in ice and then fill the pitcher with water.  It’ll taste great right away, and the flavors continue to intensify as the water rests.
