Cucumber Sparkling Water

© 2012 Jessie Kaufman


I first encountered this water in Brooklyn two years ago at the Food & Film Fest under the Brooklyn Bridge. I meant to write down the brand so I could buy some, but forgot about it likely because of the free beer tastings. 

Anyway, so last week my husband's best friend was in town and invited us out to dinner with his fiancee. We ended up going to the Red Canary and lo and behold, the cucumber water was served.



I had to figure out how to make it at home. You're gonna love it. It's so simple. And it's like eating a cucumber- the most refreshing thing ever.

Cucumber Sparkling Water
1 water carafe
1 bottle of your favorite sparkling water (you can even use tap, if you want)
3-5 slices of cucumber, skin on

Pour water into carafe, add cucumber slices. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Serve over ice. Garnish with a cucumber slice floating in the glass.

  5. i had a glass of cucumber water in a spa a few years ago and I thought that was the most refreshing water I've ever had. Thanks for reminding me that indeed I could put cucumber on my water to enliven the taste.
    happy meeting you!

  8. Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it's difficult to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you've done a excellent job
    with this. Also, the blog loads very quick for me on Firefox.

    Superb Blog!

  12. I tend not to write a great deal of remarks,
    however i did some searching and wound up here "Cucumber Sparkling Water".
    And I do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind.

    Could it be just me or does it appear like some of the responses look as if they are left by brain dead individuals?

    :-P And, if you are writing at additional online social sites, I'd like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Would you make a list of all of your social sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  16. My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.

    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on
    numerous websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can
    transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
