These infused water recipes will surely help make everyday water a bit more interesting and flavorful.

Water doesn’t have to be boring. No offense to water but just plain water can get a bit mundane. We drink a TON of fizzy water every single day in our house. 

More often than not it is infused with lemon juice. We are always looking for new ways to infuse our water though.

Sometimes when I read a recipe it is so that I can figure out how to actually cook something and sometimes it is as a reminder. Infused water seems like a simple thing and it is but sometimes we just need a reminder.

We know we need to drink more water but sometimes just the idea of drinking one more ordinary glass of ice water is dreadful. 

So next time you are reminding yourself to drink more water, why not go for infused water instead?

Use our infused water recipes below as inspiration. You can add a touch of sugar to the recipe to sweeten it up but you don’t have to. 

These are just meant as ideas to inspire you. Make up your own recipes.

Tips on making infused water

  • Use cold filtered water. Cold water will help bring out the freshest version of your fruit as it infuses.
  • Allow the fruits and the water to have plenty of time in the fridge. The longer that you allow it to infuse, the more flavorful it will be.
  • We add ice to our infused water before we place it in the fridge. Yes, the ice will slowly melt in the fridge but that process somehow just makes it tastier.  
  • Use a pitcher that has a lid. It is best if the aromas don’t escape the pitcher, or for the water to absorb fridge odors.
  • Infused water can last up to two days in the fridge. 
  • Yes, you can eat the fruit in the infused water but that luscious flavor has effused into the water, so it may not be as tasty as fresh fruit.
