SASSY WATER from:::http://www.asweetsimplelife.com/home/2012/1/16/sassy-water.html

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.

I like to make a batch and divide it among a few ball jars so I can take it to work or with me on errands.  Go ahead! Make it! Embrace your inner sassiness.
