Feeling sassy? I am.
I found this brilliant, brilliant idea on Sitno Seckanovia via my favorite website ever.... drumroll please... Pinterest! How did I ever survive without it? A place to ooooh and awww over hundreds of mind-boggling ideas... A place to bookmark and easily organize anything I stumble across online... AHHHHHHH!!!
Let's just say I spend way too much time on there.
Anyways... sassy water. (Don't you love the name?) Rumored to help you maintain a flat belly, lemon and water fuse overnight to create a natural detox, helping to flush impurities out of your system. The cucumber lends a cool, refreshing flavor while the mint gives it a bit of a snap. The original recipe had fresh ginger, but I didn't have any and I still really liked the result.
