How to Make Infused Water
Before sharing some yummy combinations, the first thing we want to talk about is how to actually make infused water. It’s pretty simple:
- Step one: Add all the ingredients to a pitcher, jar or glass, slightly mashing up the fruits to release their flavor
- Step two: Break and bruise the herbs in your hands, to release the flavor and natural extracts
- Step three: Top with filtered water and enjoy!
Let the beverage sit in the fridge for an hour or more so the flavors can blend together! You can keep the infused water in the fridge for about a week, and you can keep refilling it with water or adding more fruit as you keep drinking it, until it no longer has a pronounced flavor.
Lemon and Passion Fruit
Keep guests hydrated with this delicious combination of lemon and passion fruit! To make it, follow these steps:
- Start by blending the seeds of some passion fruits with half a cup of water
- Strain the seeds out
- Add the passion fruit water to a pitcher and add lemon slices.
- Top with water and let it infuse for a few hours in the fridge.
That’s it! Your delicious infused water is ready to be savoured!
