Every party needs festive drink choices. Nothing could be more colorful or simple than strawberry cucumber spa water. Last summer I posted a tutorial on Beard & Bonnet for making infused waters at home, and it is still one of our most popular posts. I'm guessing that lots of you prepare infused waters at home for yourself. However, it seems like they aren't always first on the list when it comes to entertaining.
There is a bit of time involved, but it isn't active time. When you are planning your next gathering, be sure to add this one to your 'to-do' list. It's a beautiful, delicious, and festive alternative for guests that aren't consuming cocktails.
Strawberry Cucumber Spa Water is perfect for big gatherings!
This recipe makes a gallon of strawberry cucumber spa water. This is the perfect amount for a gathering of 12- 15 people, as long you have other drinks to offer as well. If you are interested in making a batch of spa water for yourself, simply complete the steps: infuse the water, strain out the fruit, and store the flavored water in a gallon size container in the fridge for up to 2 days. Feel free to add fresh sliced berries and cucumbers to individual glasses each time you indulge!
