You don’t need to visit a chic spa to sip fancy water—you can make a refreshing version right at home.

I use “hot house” cucumber (a popular type—long and thin, wrapped in plastic—found in most mainstream supermarkets) because it has thin skin, minimal seeds, and great flavor, but you can easily replace it with another variety. Whip up a single glass for yourself or a big batch for a bunch of friends if you’re entertaining.

This fizzy sip features water-rich fruit (cucumber and lemon) as well as LaCroix Lemon Sparkling Water for a double dose of hydration. You can swap in any lemon-flavored sparkling water and feel free to mix in whatever herbs you like—basil and mint work well, but you could also try a sprig or rosemary, thyme, parsley, cilantro or whatever other green you prefer.
