Fruit Infused Water Recipes for Summer

Are you a water drinker? If you are, do you drink the recommended 8 glasses of water a day? I’ll be honest, I do not like water. It’s plain, flavorless, not carbonated and flat out boring. However, recently I’ve discovered a way to give water flavor and even make it beautiful. Dare I say that I’ll even drink 8 glasses a day if prepared in my new found way. I’m talking about infusing water with fruits and herbs to bring it to life…or at least make it more interesting and flavorful.

Today I have a bunch of varieties that are easy, beautiful and FULL of flavor.

    This sounds so refreshing! Silly question: can you keep refilling the water in the pitcher and how long can you keep doing that?
    Thanks!
