Fruit-Infused Refreshment

These five flavoured waters will help you increase your water intake, and they taste great. I am sharing the five flavours that my family and I enjoy the most. Kids love the glasses-lidded bottles. The lid keeps the bugs out of the drink when you're outside. Having coloured lids also makes it easy for children to know which one is theirs. Who knew water could taste this good?

Basic Recipe

  • 5 cups water
  • 1 whole lemon, sliced
  • 6 to 8 mint leaves (fresh), chopped

How to Make Fruit-Infused Water

  1. Take five glass jars or bottles. Add water to each. Set one bottle aside so one is kept as a basic drink.
  2. Line up the other four bottles, and add the fruit of your choice. (Each bottle pictured has the different berries and fruit written below it. The amount of fruit used for each is also listed there.)
  3. When done, put on the lids and place them in the fridge overnight. In the morning, they will be ready to go.
  4. You can also take this basic recipe and use a juice jug for a much larger serving. Use six 8-ounce glasses of water. If your juice jug holds more, then add till full.
  5. This will keep for a week in the fridge. This can be the basic recipe you keep in the fridge to top up your drinks. Now all you have to do is add the fruit as needed.
Ahh, what cool refreshing drinks.
