How to make mint water – a simple and refreshing summer drink!

This simple combination makes a beautifully refreshing drink on a hot summer’s day and was a favourite of mine this Ramadan.

This was actually a favourite (and staple) of mine for iftar this Ramadan. The mint, lemon and cucumber all lend their subtle flavours to the water and create a delicious combination, perfect for a hot afternoon!

The bonus is that it’s incredibly simple to make and I’m all about simple – no mess, no fuss and no major prep! Alhamdullilah.

NOTE: If you’d like a sweet version, you can add a few drops of liquid stevia to the mix or a little apple juice.
