Stir in all the additions into the water so that they don't settle at the bottom of the jar.
Cover the jar with a lid and allow this water to be infused with all the goodness of the cucumber, lemons and mint leaves. Allow to steep at least for 6 hours, but overnight is preferred. You may refrigerate the jar of water as well.
