How to: Infuse Water

This weekend I FINALLY invested in a pitcher that has a special spot for fruit!
Prodyne® Fruit Infusion Pitcher

Beyond being perfect for making my sangrias, I'm also going to use it to flavor water throughout the week. Typically the only liquids I drink are water, coffee, and your assortment of beer, wine or champagne. The beer, wine and champagne only happen on weekends...so throughout the week I only drink water and coffee. As you can imagine, water gets pretty damn boring after a while. I used to try those Crystal Light packets but I hate the taste of that fake sugar. (if you know me, then you know I stash Truvia like a pack-rat in all of my bags so that I never have to use Splenda in a coffee shop haha).

But, besides adding lemon to water...what else is there? Here are a few ideas and some of my favorites! For all of these, let the fruit infuse overnight!
  • Lemon Water: 1/2 lemon per pitcher
  • Strawberry Mint: 3 sliced strawberries, several mint leaves (crush them so the flavor comes out)
  • Pineapple: 6 chunks of fresh pineapple
  • All Citrus'd Out: 1/4 lemon, 1/4 lime, 1/2 orange
Let me know if you have any favorites!
