Infused Waters

I’ve  been experimenting with some infused/vitamin waters. Fun to make, easy to drink and healthy! Here are the 3 flavour combinations I tried, plus a bunch of other ideas below. The key is to leave it to steep overnight before drinking. These water bottles I bought from the local ‘coin buster’ store for $4 each.

Infused waters

L-R they are….

1) Fennel/Citrus. Mix 10 cups of water with…

* Half a fennel bulb thinly sliced

* Juice of 1 lemon (chuck the lemon in after you’ve squeezed it)

* 1 orange thinly sliced

* 12 fresh chopped mint leaves

2) Lemon/Cucumber. Mix 10 cups of water with…

* 1/2 telegraph cucumber thinly sliced

* 1 lemon thinly sliced

* 1/4 cup finely chopped basil leaves

* 1/3 cup finely chopped mint leaves

3) Blackberry/Sage. This one is full of antioxidants! Mix 10 cups of water with…

* 1 cup blackberries slightly crushed (I used frozen)

* 6 – 8 sage leaves (twist them a bit to release the aroma)

====================================

Other ideas… (always with 10 cups water)

* 1 cup cubed watermelon + 2 rosemary stems

* 1 cup chopped pineapple + 12 chopped mint leaves

* 1 cup chopped apple + 2 cinnamon sticks

* 2 cups cooled ginger tea + 5 small chunks peeled fresh ginger

* 1 cup raspberries + 1 thinly sliced lime + 12 fresh chopped mint leaves
