Truly Refreshing: Cucumber Water


We were served this at Orange on Harrison, in Chicago. It is now The Child's and my favorite summer afternoon beverage. It's just a slice or two of cucumber in a glass of water but there's an aromatherapy component; you get a whiff of the the cuke (the definition of "fresh", in my view) before you drink the water and it goes straight to that place in your brain that regulates your perception of heat...you start to cool down before you take a sip. Trust me.

Let me know what you think, Twisi...I'm thinking the Florida summers cry out for something like this.

SCG: Duly noted. Or should I say, doula noted?

Hat: Please buy yourself sumpthin fancy with all the money you're going to save.

Sling: It is the essence of refeshing. I'm thinking we need to start serving it at the club.
