Fruit-Infused Water

Ingredients

FRUIT:

  • Citrus: grapefruit, lemon, lime, orange, tangerines
  • Berries: strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, cherries
  • Tropical: pear, pomegranate, mango, pineapple, banana, kiwi
  • Melons: honeydew, cantaloupe, watermelon
  • Other: apples, grapes, plums, peaches, nectarines

VEGETABLES:

  • Cucumber, carrots, celery, peppers (hot or sweet)

HERBS/SPICES:

  • Mint, sage, rosemary, basil, cilantro, thyme, lavender ginger, cinnamon stick (ground cinnamon will float), black pepper

Instructions

  1. Add the fruit/vegetables of your choice to a glass.
  2. Take a muddler (or just use a wooden spoon or regular spoon) to slightly mash and breakdown the fruit/vegetables.
  3. Tip: peel the citrus fruits from their skin to avoid a bitter taste.
  4. Take the herb/spice of choice and gently bruise the leaf (i.e. gently mashing). This helps release the natural extracts and oils from the herb/spice.
  5. Add either sparkling water or filtered water and drink!
