I know I’ve sung the praises of detox water recipes before, and I probably will again. What can I say? I am a reluctant-water-drinker turned pitcher-of-water-a-day girl because of the flavored water that is constantly in my fridge.
That said, I tried a couple of new recipes for a Water Bar at a World Water Day party last week and now have a couple of new favorites. Of course, I figured y’all probably needed to try these out as well. True story- a new batch of Blood Orange Mint water is brewing in a pitcher in my fridge right now- love it.
Want to try out a couple of new kinds of flavored water too?
To make Blood Orange Mint Detox Water– Add half of one blood orange, sliced, plus a handful of mint (I used pineapple mint because that’s what we have in my window garden) to a pitcher. Let sit over night, drink the next day. *For variation, try a quarter of a blood orange and a quarter of a navel orange- that’s good too.
To make Grapefruit Rosemary Detox Water– Add half of a grapefruit and several sprigs of rosemary (I only added a couple of small sprigs the first time and couldn’t really taste the rosemary- so be sure to be generous with the rosemary) to the bottom of a pitcher. Let sit over night. Drink the next day.
Cheers friends! And, this probably goes without saying, but if you’ve tried some other fabulous citrus/herb water combination, send it my way. With all of these new flavored water ideas, maybe I will actually stay hydrated this summer?
