>still, sparkling, tap... cucumber infused?

At times, you have probably requested it with lemon.

You are rarely served, especially outside of California, a cool, smooth glass of cucumber-flavored water.

A night out with mom at Aziza in San Francisco was an enchanting escape into Majorelle blue and sumptuous gold.

Unlike El Mansour, another Moroccan restaurant nearby where my sister was delighted to find us instantly transported to a crazy loud belly-dancing Arabian night, Aziza is a subdued, spare, dark space where you barely notice couples cuddling in their own semi-private booths.

Water magic? We were transported to a faraway land where cucumber helps you feel toasty warm, and blue leaves you flushed pink.
