Don't use volume in recipes, only use weights! Especially when citrus is concerned as there is much variation in size.

I've been drinking that every day if the uc was a typo and stands for cucumber (1 lemon, 1/2 cucumber, 1" ginger root, and 10 mint leaves. I love it and think it makes the water taste really good (cool and smooth). What do you think of it? Have you tried it yet?

I don't use the orange or lemon. I'm a lime/cucumber lady. At my local Mexican grocery, I get limes and cucumbers very inexpensively so I drink this type of taste infused water all day long. I add a large variety of other herbs and spices to change it up a bit like ginger, fenugreek, cilantro leaves, various mints, even a little ground black pepper is to my liking. I know, weird.

There's a similar recipe in the book called Fat Flush Plan. With 1 lemon thinly sliced, I uc thinly sliced, 1 inch sliced ginger and mint leaves. Needs refrigerated overnight. Water may be added once but flavor will be weaker. It's very delicious and the lemon is very good for your liver and kidneys.

I have a question. If I keep adding water to the fruits and cucumber how long will it last in the fridge?
