Infused water is the perfect summer drink – super hydrating and with the addition of fruit and herbs can be extremely delightful, flavourful and refreshing.
How to make it?
Well, it couldn’t be easier.
All you need is a jug of water and some fruit and/or herbs. Simply pop your herbs and fruit into the water (you might want to slice the big fruits like apples, lemons or grapefruits so the final flavour of the water is more intense) and then you just wait… Ideally you want to leave it to infuse overnight, up to 12 hours for best results but with a minimum infusing time of just 4 hours. When ready remove the fruit and herbs from the water, discard them and store the infused water in the fridge (for up to 3 days) ready to use.
For most people plain water can get a little boring especially if consumed regularly, but with the endless possibilities for infused water, everyone will find something they like and will enjoy.
I personally like the simple combo of lemon and mint – a few thick slices of lemon and a small handful of fresh mint left in the fridge overnight gives me an extremely refreshing drink in the morning.
With so many different fruits in season right now, I wanted to share with you some infused water ideas from other bloggers in the hope that they will inspire you to create your own infused water combos.
Which of those takes your fancy?
