My Citrus Mint Water Recipe

 Happy Tuesday, my friends! I am going to talk about infused water. I have been really into putting fruit and even some mint in my water. I want share some of my recipes with you.

Now lets get to the easy part; making it. To figure out how much of what you are going to need, you’ll need to put it in something. I just use a tumbler and put the fruit and mint right inside with ice and the water. I just refill it with water through out the day. I’m the only one who drinks it so I don’t make a big batch.  It also has a lot to do with preference. You can add lime, but since I’m not a huge fan of lime so I decided to take that out.

For a medium sized tumbler, I used:
2 slices of lemon cut in halves
1 slice of orange cut in half
5 fresh mint leaves ( you can use less, I just really like the mint flavor!)

First I put some ice and water just covering the ices. I then put my first lemon slice that I cut in half in and put two mint leaves on top.

Then, the first half of my orange slice and the last slice of lemon ( cut in half) and two mint leaves.

Lastly, I add my last half slice of orange and my last mint leave and add water.

That is all it is. Super easy and super good! It’s super good and it’s organic.

It’s also very pretty to look at! If your into infused water share your favorite combo!
