Flavored Water Recipes

Do you love water?  I do, but it took a little nudging.  Drinking water is second nature for my children, but it sure isn’t for me.  It has taken me a lot of time to really get in the habit and I have found that adding a little something to liven up the flavor really has helped me along.  Today I am sharing some of my favorite flavored water recipes.

Y’all know that I don’t bake or cook anything that is remotely complicated or with a long ingredient list.  These water recipes are beyond easy, but so yummy.  Each only requires a few items from the supermarket and most you will normally have on hand.

1. Citrus Infused Water  I love anything citrus as do many of you.  To acheive this delicious recipe, simply add sliced oranges and lemons to a pitcher of ice water.  Summer never tasted so delicious!

The benefits of drinking plenty of water are vast.  Even if you weren’t raised drinking water, it is never too late to get in the habit.  Add fresh fruit and herbs to give ordinary water a new life and incredible taste.  Whip up a batch in the morning and enjoy a delicious treat all day long!

  1. Thanks for the great infused water recipes! I hear ya re: the water thing. I just made a pitcher of ice water with lemon and limes but I’m definitely going to try the others.

  2. I’m a big water drinker. Here are 2 of my favorites if that’s okay… If you like pineapple, put pineapple in your water (I never thought of pineapple until I was at a boutique and they were offering it – it was very refreshing). Also put apple slices and cinnamon sticks in your water and let it steep for a couple of hours. I can’t wait to try the lemon/orange and the mint/strawberry.

    Love the infused water recipes!! I’m trying to drink more water, but plain is no fun. Thanks for the great ideas!!

  4. Judi Johnson says:

    I was wanting a little clarification. Do you squeeze the fruit in then add the slices? How long do you need to let it set for the flavors to infuse? Is the taste weak or strong? I really want to try it but if I can’t taste the fruit why bother? Help please!

    • Hi Judi!
      If you are going to drink it right away, I would definitely squeeze the fruit before you add it to the water. I usually will whip up a batch in the morning and sip on it throughout the day. It is definitely more flavorful as the day goes on. Hope this helps! Thanks for popping in!

      Take care,

      Trish

  5. Flavored water is perfect for summer!

  6. SO pretty, and living in AZ, we drink a LOT of water in the summer, and plain water gets boring! Love this! I’d love for you to come link these up at my Skip The Housework Party! http://bit.ly/TerHGJ

  7. I am definitely going to have to try the infused water – H2O is about all I drink all day long!

  8. What tasty and refreshing look drinks! I’d love for you to share at our link it or lump it party going on now, if you’ve not yet. http://www.delineateyourdwelling.com/2014/05/link-it-or-lump-it-party-number-38.html

  9. My husband was just commenting, the other day, about how we need to start drinking flavored water instead of the mixed teas we’re always drinking. I agreed with him but was kind of stumped about what else to do other than just sliced lemons in water. Thank you for these simple ideas! I will definitely give these a try. (Found you on the Monday Funday link up.)

  10. I use infused waters a lot but the strawberry mint combo is new to me. I have both in my fridge and will be taking it in my water bottle for work. Your photos are very nice.

  11. Not only do these look refreshing and delightful, they are also beautiful!

  12. Michelle @ Elegance & Enchantment says:

    Thanks for sharing these awesome flavored water recipes! They definitely make me nostalgic for my childhood summers. My mom has always grown her own mint and she would make us flavored waters that always had mint involved, all summer long. I look forward to trying these out— I just need to get some cute bottles like you have! Where can I find those? Thanks again! :)

  13. YUM!! I love infused waters, and lucky for me I have plenty of mint and basil growing in my garden right now!

  14. Linda J says:

    Loved the new infused water for me to try and love the bottles you used. Where did you purchase the bottles? They make the water look so good.

    • Hi Linda! I purchased mine from a place called Carolina Pottery. They only have a few locations in the Southeast. I did see something similar at Wal-Mart a few weeks ago… hope this helps! Have a great weekend!

      Take care,

      Trish
