Refreshing melon and cucumber infused water

Refreshing melon infused water, is one of my vacation memories from my very first time to the Philippines. Well actually the drink from the Philippines was sweet with alot of added sugar. This thirst quencher is just ripe melon, cucumber and water and left to rest in the fridge for a few hours to bring out the flavours.

If you are used to the Filipino kind, this drink will be quite tame in comparison. As my cousin said this is a thirst quencher, if there is too much sugar in the drink you will just get thirstier.

Ingredients

1 ripe melon, I used 1/2 a Piel de sapo and 1/2 a cantaloupe

A few slices of cucumber for color

1,5 liter Water

(If you want it sweet add some sugar and artificial sweetener)

Shred, dice or scoop out the fruit. I usually do this over a large bowl or directly into a pitcher so no juice will go to waste, that’s where the flavour is. Thinly slice some cucumber for color.

Combine the fruit and water in a large pitcher and leave it in the fridge for a few hours or a day.

You can do this with any fruit and fruit combination. Experiment and enjoy your fruit infused water.
