    I am allergic to citrus fruits so I had to alter the ingredients. I use pineapple chunks in place of the lemon and it really was refreshing. I let my 4 children taste it and they all liked it and even said they would drink it again. This is something I never would have thought of. - 10/9/07

  • I'ce made water like this since hacing it at a spa awhile back. People don't think cucumber would add much taste, but it really adds a clean, fresh aspect to plain water. Drinking this concoction makes me feel really healthy! - 3/10/10
