Refreshing Infused Water Recipes

Water has never been so party-worthy. Keep guests hydrated and sipping pretty at summer events with refreshing infused water. You can have some fun with different fruit, vegetable, and herb combinations for various flavors while making it too. Add sliced fruit and herbs to a carafe, fill with water, refrigerate, and let the flavors meld. Here are some of our all-time favorite infused water recipes we created for you to enjoy! They taste refreshingly delicious, look gorgeous in our carafes, and pour perfectly into cups. Our infused water ideas look aesthetic and will be just suitable for your Instagram feed.

Blueberry Love

 Here's our first recipe for you. We call it Blueberry love! You guessed right; it is the recipe for Blueberry Mint Lime Water. You will need,

  • One lime (You should thinly slice the lime)
  • About 1/3 cup of blueberries
  • fresh mint sprigs
  • You can use about four to five cups of water

Take a suitable jug. Put the blueberries, lime slices, and mint leaves into the jug. Then add the water. Give the mix a good stir. You can also close the pitcher and give it a good shake instead of stirring. Then let the water sit for at least 30 minutes. But we love to refrigerate our mix for a minimum of five hours.

Let's move on to the following recipe, shall we? But, first, let us tell you that the ingredients used for this infused water recipe remind us of a warm hug. It is sweet and spicy and just right! 

Cinnamon Ginger Pear Water

Are we using cinnamon for this recipe? Yes, we are. Here's how to make Cinnamon Ginger Pear Water.

  • One pear (make sure to slice it thinly)
  • Cinnamon sticks (We suggest using about six sticks)
  • freshly grated ginger (A chunk of ginger would do)

Let us answer a few questions before getting into the mix. You can either peel the pear or leave the peel on. Make sure to peel the ginger, though. Can you mince the ginger? You can chop the ginger into tiny pieces instead of grating it. 

We first put all the ingredients into a clear carafe to make a liquid hug. Then we poured about four to five cups of water in. Then closed the lid of the carafe and gave them a shake. Then into the refrigerator, they went for the next eight hours! Then, of course, you can remove the sticks of cinnamon when serving if you want. 

We once read on a page that recommended letting the infused water sit in the sun for a while. So we did try this suggestion, and the intensity of the flavors was die-for. So do try this if you like your flavors a little enormously. And yes, this is said to work for all infused water recipes, although we haven't tried sitting all our recipes in the sun.

Smarties, you can replace the pear with red apple and omit the ginger for a more mild flavor.

Strawberry Cucumber Basil Water

Below are the ingredients you need to make your own Strawberry Cucumber Basil Water. We have to say we are here for the pretty look and the taste of the water.

  • 1/2 sliced cucumber
  • fresh basil leaves (You can use about four to five fresh leaves)
  • Five strawberries (You can either cut them in half or slice them into pieces)

Like the first two recipes, you must start by adding the ingredients to a suitable container and adding the water. Stir and let cool. And then enjoy a refreshing drink after a few hours!

Lemon Cucumber Infused Water

We enjoy tasting this infused water on hot summer days. All you need is,

  • One lemon, thinly sliced
  • Some sliced cucumbers (We used about half a cucumber)
  • Fresh mint leaves 

Into a jug goes all the slices of cucumber and lemon, along with the mint leaves. Next comes the four cups of water. And you are ready to refrigerate after giving the jug a shake. 

We are sure our tropical fruit lovers will love our fifth suggestion. 

Mango Pineapple Mint-Infused Water

Our fifth recipe is a mango pineapple mint-infused water. Given below are the necessary ingredients.

  • Mango (We used about a cup of mango. We cut it into small chunks)
  • Pineapple (one cup or half a cup will do. We recommend cutting the pineapple into pieces rather than slicing it)
  • Mint leaves

Mix the above elements with about six cups of water. Let it be for a few hours. Then, pour the water into your cups and relax! Of course, you can replace the mango with cucumber, too, if you want.

Do you fancy green apples and raspberries? Then the following recipe is for you.

Green Apple Rosemary and Raspberry Water

To make your green apple rosemary and raspberry water, you will need,

  • One green apple (We recommend slicing them thinly. You can choose to leave the peel or not)
  • Seven to eight raspberries (We suggest using one cup of fresh berries)
  • Fresh rosemary

Take a suitable pitcher and add all the ingredients to it. Then pour enough water to cover the fruits and put on the pitcher's lid. Next, shake the jug and let the water rest for a few hours in your refrigerator.

You can start drinking the water right after mixing them, but the flavors will become stronger the longer you allow the ingredients to intermingle. As we suggested before, let the water cool for about a minimum of thirty minutes. You can also let it sit in the refrigerator for five, eight, twelve, or twenty-four hours, depending on how flavored the water is. The infused water will stay good for about three days in the refrigerator.

To recreate this look, serve infused water in mini carafes (7.5 oz.) or large carafes (35 oz.) and pair with straws and charger plates.
