Chilled cucumber water

Recommended Posts

It's 90 in San Francisco today.    I know that that's not such a big deal for a lot of you, but here, and for us, it's exhausting.   Fog is our air conditioning.

 

So I remembered a quaff we were offered  last summer, a glass of iced water that had cucumber slices in it.   Lots of slices the pitcher but not served.     It is very refreshing, somewhat herbal.    Heartily recommend for those looking for a non-alcoholic and non-sweet cold drink.

@Margaret Pilgrim Cucumber water is the drink of choice at spas. Always welcome. Kabuki Hot Springs in Japantown in SF is pretty nice, but def not today. Yes, here in the Bay Area we are all in on the whine festival about the heat. It is supposed to go into the high 90's in Oakland today and into the 100's just ten minutes inland. As those of you who are familiar with our climate are aware, no one here has air conditioning.

 

My solution last night was a root beer float. That's on top of gallons of iced tea consumed all day. But I do have a cucumber hanging around, so maybe  a pitcher of that will go into the fridge this morning. Good idea!

And we haven't even mentioned gin and tonics. Maybe necessary if watching the Warriors.
