Is that even a word anymore? Sassy!
Originally created by some woman named Sass (last name) over at Prevention, this is a slightly modified version, but nevertheless still sassy as hell. Supposedly able to target belly fat and promote a flat belly (combined with a diet but a diet consisting of 1600 calories a day which is higher than I aim for so what about that is a diet?), this water is, most importantly, delicious. If the lemon helps my liver to flush out last night's martini, then so be it, I count that as a pleasant surprise. I drink this stuff because it tastes great and since I read that club soda (and other carbonated bevvies) can cause dental erosion and gastro issues, it's nice having another drink option besides plain old water.
God, could I intro this sassy water with even more words? Jeeze.
2 lemons, quartered
12 mint leaves
1/2 cucumber, sliced
2 - 3 quarts water
In your pitcher, squeeze all the lemon quarters, dump in the mint and cucumber slices, and pour the water over all that yummy stuff. For optimal, prime water (SEE WHAT I DID THERE) let it chill overnight. But if you are like me and absolutely do not have the patience gene, you can go right ahead and drink it. Who gives a shit anyway? You are SASSY! I had a large iced tea from Jack in the Box, okay, I am vibrating right now! I am SASSY!!!
