Herb Mineral Water

Servings: 4
A refreshing and healthy drink for those warm summer days. Make sure to use chilled bottled "still" water or "spring" water to make this very cool beverage.

6 cups chilled still spring or mineral water
12 thin slices cucumber
4 thin slices lemon or lime
4 sprigs (each 2 in. long) fresh mint, slightly crushed
2 sprigs (each 2 in. long) fresh rosemary, slightly crushed

In a 2 to 2 1/2-quart pitcher, combine water, cucumber, lemon (or lime), mint, and rosemary. Serve, or cover and chill at least 2 hours or up to 8 hours. Add ice cubes just before serving.

Makes about 1 1/2 quarts; about 4 servings
