Enjoy this simple and lovely deliciousness of herbal infused water with any thirsty summertime crowd.
Infused water is one of the easiest ways to incorporate herbs into your daily life and has virtually endless possibilities of combinations to create. People will think this is a magical elixir on a warm day,
and that’s exactly what it special about it.
What flavorful herbs do I infuse in the water from my Soquel Hills’ well? I put in spearmint leaves, rose geranium flowers and leaves as well as lemon and orange slices. The combination of these fragrant herbs along with the refreshing hints of citrus taste is oh oh sooo good and really does quench your thirst.
You can try a combination of many common garden variety herbs like lemon balm, camomile, mints, sages, flowers like rose geranium and fruit like citrus, berries and even veggies like cucumbers.
People like the mint because of its cooling qualities especially beneficial on hot days and my family loves the addition of Rose Geranium that added the most wonderful hint of rose that is such a surprise taste. Try adding sliced lemon and orange. The combination of these tastes is really quite delicious and refreshing!
In a quart sized mason jar, fill 1/4 full with fresh herbs, washed, with leaves pulled off of stems. Discard stems and damaged or bruised leaves. Fill the rest of the jar with water and refrigerate for 2 hours or up to 2 days. Strain and enjoy!
