Infused waters are super trending right now. I get it. Drinking enough water is difficult. You have to drink so much of it in a day, and sometimes caffeine is really just hollering your name. Infused waters are an enjoyable way to get enough water intake, and valuable vitamins and nutrients from whatever you put in them. Not to mention - they're beautiful! Today, I will give you infused waters 4 ways. For this recipe we will be making lemon mint water, blackberry sage water, orange pineapple ginger water, and strawberry basil water.

Yields4 Servings
Prep Time5 mins

 2 lemon slices
 2 sprigs of mint
 5 pineapple chunks
 2 thin slices of ginger
 2 orange slices
 5 blackberries
 2 sage leaves
 1 lg strawberry (sliced)
 2 leaves of basil
 1 cup water
 1 small handful of ice

1

Put ice in your mason jar.

2

Slice up your fruit and bruise your herbs. You can do this by rolling the herbs firmly on your cutting board or giving it a whack with a spoon.

3

Put your fruit and herb combinations into the jar. For the blackberries, you will want to muddle them a little bit to release the flavor. Once you've thrown your fruit and herbs in over the ice, just pour water over it all. Fill the mason jar to the neck of the jar, where the thread lids start.

4

Put on the lid and shake it up. You don't want to leave the fruit on top because the flavors will settle and won't get properly infused throughout the entire jar. Once you've shaken up everything, refrigerate for at least 4 hours to get proper infusion. I wouldn't recommend letting it sit any longer than overnight, because it may start to get bitter or overpowering with the herbs.

These flavors can be really nice any time of year. You can add spices if you would like to warm them up for winter and leave the ice out. You can, of course, adjust the amount of ingredients to fit your tastes better and can make them by the pitcher full if you are serving a group of people.
