Water that Wows
Making infused water is simple — slice the fruit you want to use and drop it into water, along with your favorite fresh herbs and spices. You can start drinking it right away, but you might not notice the flavors until it infuses for a few hours (four hours achieves the most potent flavor). Letting the mixture sit overnight in the fridge works best. As long as you keep your water refrigerated, the fruit should stay fresh. If you are filling your pitcher with water throughout the week, keep in mind that it will dilute the flavor each time you refill. It’s recommended to drink your water within 3-5 days and make a new batch once you notice the fruit has started to soften. Experiment and have fun with it. Choose ingredients you enjoy and try new things you haven’t tried before.
