I’m convinced there’s nothing prettier than fruit infused water. Whenever Spring creeps in, I break out my trusty water dispenser. I bought this little guy a few years ago at Marshalls for around $10 or so – best find ever. If you entertain, have anyone over ever – you need this! This little gallon jug can be used for so many things: fruit infused water, tea, mixed bevs, and fun seasonal inspired drinks. If you’re having a BBQ at your house, try making homemade lemonade, or fruit infused water – it’s perfect for a crowd, and looks beautiful displayed.
Okay, let’s get to today’s post: fruit infused water – my fave
I swear I’m not in it for the aesthetics, I’m in it for the health benefits, but if it looks good.. bonus! There are a ton of ways to make fruit infused water, and there is no wrong way to do it. It’s completely up to personal preference, and it’s always fun to make. Today, I’m sharing my take on how to throw it together, my favorite blends, and best practices of keeping it fresh.
