There’s a cafe in the lobby of our office building and believe it or not, they serve up the best water.
Yes, you read that correctly. I said water. Not just any kind, though. It’s infused. Some days it’s just sliced limes, while other days they get real ambitious and blend together grapefruit, blueberries, oranges, and all other sorts of yummy goodness. Like clockwork, I’ll park my car on the third floor of the ramp and then head downstairs to order a hot coffee with a large cup of the ice cold good stuff. It’s to the point where I wake up curious and weirdly excited on what this morning’s flavor is going to be.
While this is all find and dandy five days out of the week, how do I satiate my thirst on Saturdays and Sundays? Lucky for me, this whole infused water thing isn’t rocket science. So, during the weekend, Andrew and I decided to experiment with our own concoction. After a huge success, we’ve now decided to make it a weekly thing. Today, you are reading the very first installment! Over the course of these extremely hot months, I’ll be posting a variety of mixtures that are both delicious and foolproof.
For starters, here’s the one we recently tried:
4-6 strawberries, quartered
½ lemon, sliced
Handful of mint, scrunched
Cold filtered water
Fill pitcher to the top with ice cubes and fruit. Scrunch mint leaves to release fragrance and then sprinkle on top of ice cubes and fruit. Cover with cold filtered water and let infuse for 2-3 hours. Now go and get to hydrating! It is officially summer after all, so stay tuned for more recipes like this one.
