Infused Water

The first day of summer is not officially here, but in Florida, I really doubt that that matters. I so enjoy a glass of cool, fruit infused water on a hot day. Also, I enjoy summer’s fruits like watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, and peaches. Summer vegetables are in full swing in my little organic backyard garden. It is a great time to think about health and fresh!!

Simply fill your favorite container with spring water and add your favorite fruits and herbs.  I grow my own herbs, therefore, I have a variety from which to pick.  One of my favorite combinations is that of berries and rosemary or mint.

Here are a few combinations that work well together:

  • Cucumber + lime + strawberry + mint
  • Lemon + raspberry + rosemary
  • Orange + blueberry + basil
  • Lime + ginger root + basil
  • Watermelon + honeydew + mint
  • Cucumber + mint + jalapeno
  • Lemon + thyme
  • Orange + hibiscus + star anise
  • Orange + cinnamon + cardamom + cloves
  • Pear + fennel
