Lemon and Cucumber Water

Here's something refreshing and healthy...Lemon and Cucumber Water!

Put a few slices of Lemon and Cucumber in a jug, add water and then leave inside the fridge overnight. I do this every night after we've had dinner so that the following day, we'll have a few glasses of Lemon and Cucumber Water to drink.
