How To Make Fruit Infused Water
- Choose your favourite fruits and herbs, and don’t be afraid to experiment with different combinations.
- Slice or cube fruit.
- Carefully squeeze or press fruit into bottom of jar to let out its juice and essence.
- Pour in filtered water.
- Leave for few hours or overnight in fridge.
- You can remove the rinds of lemons, lime, and oranges if you don’t want your water tainted by bitterness.
- Clean your rinds really well if you want it intact as there is probably some residue of insecticides.
- You could always squeeze the juice and mash the fruits for flavour, while adding new slices that aren’t squeezed or mashed for colour and beauty.
