Best infused water ever
I had a moment this weekend. One of those moments when I saw a recipe on Pinterest and said to myself "I have to do this now!" because it seemed that easy.
I'd never tried making infused water before, for a few reasons. Number one, I though tit was actually just putting fruit in water and then drinking it. No sir, it is not. Number two, I was perfectly content with my daily Diet Coke and water breaks without any additional effort. Now after I've tried strawberry, lemon, and mint infused water, I can only be remiss about how many years of proper hydration I could have actually had. If you hate drinking water on a regular basis as much as I do, I promise, this will get you on the hydration train!
Ready for the easiest recipe you'll ever see?
Strawberry, lemon, and mint infused water
6 - 8 strawberries
1 lemon, cut into slices
1 handful of fresh mint leaves, scrunched
- Hull and cut strawberries into fourths
- Cut lemon into slices
- Take a handful of fresh mint leaves (I bought mine from Trader Joe's) and scrunch them up
- Fill the pitcher with a a 3 inch layer of ice. Toss half of strawberries, lemon slices, and mint leaves on top of ice layer. Repeat until you're done with the fruit and leaves.
- Fill the pitcher with water and leave in the refrigerator for about an hour so that the flavors can infuse.
- Drink and feel amazing!
See? I told you it was super easy! The drink is so refreshing because of the mint, and I'm sure if you used sparkling water it would taste exactly like a soda! It also doesn't hurt that the fruit makes it look so fresh and delicious. I got so many compliments on it this weekend!
