All Citrus Flavored Water

To add refreshing tartness to water:

– slice 1 orange, 1 lime, 1 lemon into rounds, then cut the rounds in half

– Add to a 2 quart jar or pitcher

– Press and twist with a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon

– Press enough to release some of the juices, but don’t pulverize the fruit into pieces

– Fill the jar with ice

– Pour in water to the top

– Stir it with the handle of a wooden spoon or a chopstick

– Put a lid on it, put it in the fridge, and chill

You can drink it right away, but the flavor intensifies if it’s made an hour or two ahead. It’s even better the next day. The ice at the top serves as a sieve so that you can pour the flavored water without getting fruit bits in your glass.

Happy sippen 🙂

  1. Good advice. Our doctor said the citrus turns to alkaline in the stomach, a good thing. We’ve been drinking lemon slices in warm water as our morning ritual for a couple of months now. Thanks
