Early last week, I was really in the mood for something super refreshing. I had already had my kobucha for the day, drank tons of water, and I was just craving something crisp.
I wanted lemon water with a little something extra. Then it came to me: spa water!
It was late in the day and I did something utterly blasphemous to the Inspiralized doctrine: I grabbed a cucumber out fo the fridge and…. a knife, to slice the cucumbers.
Can you believe it?! As I went to slice the ends off of the cucumber, it struck me – “Ali, who has time to slice that cucumber? Spiralize it!”
Like a lightbulb, I grabbed some fresh mint I had leftover from another recipe, a lemon and of course, the Inspiralizer.
Within a few seconds, I had gorgeous, fluffy, spiral-y cucumbers. I placed them into a pitcher we got for our wedding, and added in some sliced lemons and the mint.
This water was EXACTLY what I was looking for and it quenched that urge for something crisp, refreshing, and, for lack of a better word, not boring (lemon water gets old after awhile.)
Talk about food as art, right? The cucumbers look beautiful in the pitcher with a pop of color from the lemons and texture from the mint.
I can’t wait to serve this up the next time I have friends over – it’s a fancy way to serve water, especially during the summertime when cucumbers are in abundance!
If you’ve ever had spa water, you’ll love this Inspiralized spa water!
