Infused water. Detox water. It goes by many names, but is a great way to tempt yourself into drinking more water. It’s also a great thirst quencher at summer parties as it’s cheap to make and will fill many glasses!
I whipped up several drink options at a summer party I hosted yesterday including this huge container with strawberry and lime infused water, homemade lemon ice tea and strawberry daiquiri. Pretty much my all time favourite beverages! They all went down pretty well with the guests, especially the infused water after far too much wine.
- 3 litres water
- 10 strawberries
- 4 limes, sliced
Add all the ingredients together and let infuse in room temperature for about 5 hours. You’ll see the strawberries start colouring the water after a few hours. Remember to remove the lime slices after about 6 hours otherwise they will turn your water bitter! I learned the hard way. Add tons of ice cubes to keep the water cold.
Substitute the lime with lemon if you don’t have them, but remember to add more as lemons are less intense.
Tip! Freeze the lime slices before adding them to the water to help keep the water cold!
