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.

Top tips

  • 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.

And, here’s a how-to video to help you out!

 Happy slurping!
