Sure, here’s a simple and refreshing lemon water recipe:


  • 1 lemon
  • 4 cups of cold water
  • Ice cubes (optional)
  • Fresh mint leaves (optional)
  • A pinch of salt (optional)


  1. Prepare the Lemon:
    • Wash the lemon thoroughly to remove any dirt or pesticides.
    • Cut the lemon in half. You can either slice it into thin rounds or simply squeeze the juice. If you like a stronger lemon flavor, you might use two lemons instead of one.
  2. Mix with Water:
    • If you are using lemon slices, add them to a pitcher.
    • If you are using lemon juice, squeeze the juice from the lemon halves into the pitcher, removing any seeds.
  3. Combine:
    • Pour the 4 cups of cold water into the pitcher with the lemon slices or juice.
    • Stir well to combine.
  4. Enhance the Flavor (Optional):
    • Add ice cubes to make the drink more refreshing.
    • For a hint of freshness, add a few fresh mint leaves.
    • If you prefer a slightly different taste, add a pinch of salt.
  5. Serve:
    • Pour the lemon water into glasses.
    • You can garnish each glass with a lemon slice or a sprig of mint for a nice presentation.
  6. Enjoy:
    • Drink your lemon water immediately, or let it sit for a few minutes to let the flavors meld.


  • For a stronger flavor, let the lemon slices steep in the water for a couple of hours in the refrigerator.
  • You can also experiment by adding other fruits like cucumber slices, strawberries, or even a few slices of ginger for additional health benefits and flavor variations.

Enjoy your refreshing and healthy lemon water!
