This is much less a recipe than it is just an idea. So delicious and refreshing. I’m actually not one to order water with lemon while at a restaurant, but the combination of different citrus and fruit flavors definitely wins me over.
I use lemon, lime, orange, and mint in this version. The great part is that you can use nearly any type of fruit that you have around, I plan to try cucumber next. For me, this is just a great way to add flavor to the water that I know I should be drinking. Let’s face it, it’s not always easy to throw back 8 glasses of water every day.
I don’t usually garnish my glass, I just added that for looks. Sometimes adding the garnish makes the flavor a little overwhelming so I just pour straight from the picture.
I plan to make this all through the spring and summer. Surely it will be refreshing when the really hot weather hits us here in the south.
