Water Doesn't Have To Be Boring!

Infused Water Recipes

Tired of plain, boring water? These fruit-infused water ideas are both delicious and refreshing.

Water has never been so party-worthy. You'll have no problem staying hydrated when your water looks and tastes like a summertime treat. These fruit-infused waters are a wonderful and refreshing drink option for summer when the sun is out, the kids are bored, and the bugs are biting, but also to keep guests hydrated and sipping pretty at summer events. It tastes refreshingly delicious, looks absolutely gorgeous in our carafes, and pours perfectly into cups. Have some fun with different fruit, vegetable, and herb combinations for various flavors. Just add sliced fruit and herbs to a carafe, fill with water, refrigerate, and let the flavors meld. 


Here are three infused water recipes we created for you to enjoy!

Add sliced fruit and herbs to a carafe, fill with water, and let infuse! |



Blueberry Mint Lime Water

1 sliced lime
1/3 cup blueberries
fresh mint sprigs



    Cinnamon Ginger Pear Water

    1 sliced pear
    6 cinnamon sticks
    fresh grated ginger


      Strawberry Cucumber Basil Water

      1/2 sliced cucumber
      fresh basil leaves
      5 strawberries halved


        How Long Does It Take To Infuse Water?

        You can drink this water right away, but the longer it sits, the more flavorful it will become, so I like to let my fruit infused water sit at room temperature for 1-2 hours or refrigerated for about 3-4 hours before drinking it. 


        Can I Reuse The Fruit in My Infused Water?

        You can re-use the fruit for more water, and then allow it to set again and infuse — that works great for 1-2 days.  If you choose to reuse the water, I’d recommend replacing your fruit because the flavor won't be as potent.


         And yes, you can eat the fruit after you’re done drinking your infused water. I do this all the time!


        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.
