Hello, summer! It’s been bloody hot lately, hasn’t it? Enjoy it while you can, Brits, as this will probably be the only decent weekend we’ll have until next year. Wank.
I love drinking beer or wine on warm days. There’s nothing like a white wine spritzer in the sun! But because I’ve been trying to be healthier lately, I’ve been staying away from the booze.
I’ve been challenging myself to get more water in my diet for multiple reasons. I know I drink too much tea and coffee and not enough water, so after buying tonnes of fruit and knowing I’ll probably not eat it all before it starts to go off, I decided to try some fruit infused water.
The beauty of this, is that you can experiment with almost anything.
I put blueberries and sharon fruit in mine, but you can add whatever you want.
Here are some other fruit I’d like to try:
Kiwi, strawberries, raspberries, orange, lemon, lime, melon, grapefruit, blackberries.
You can also add other things, such as mint leaves or cucumber. You can use spices like vanilla and cinnamon, ginger, add sugar if you’re wanting a sweeter taste.
You can also use a sparkling water or lemonade if you want to mix it up a bit!
It’s dead easy to do:
- Put the fruit/spices in a glass container and gently press/crush to release some juices.
- Add your water.
- Leave it to infuse. You can drink it right away, but 4 hours is recommended, over night is even better.
What would you put in your fruit infused water?
Oh, and if you’re wondering about the container, it’s a wine glass that can fit a full bottle of wine in that a friend bought me for my birthday. Heeeee.
