By Jane Thomas
Citrus Energy Water
8 Cups water and ice
2 Cups strawberries cut in half
1/2 orange, sliced
10 Mint leaves
Slice half of an orange and place in the bottom of a half-gallon pitcher.
Cut up strawberries and put on top of oranges.
Add mint leaves; rub gently to help release their flavor.
Add ice and fill with water.
Ginger, Strawberry + Lemon Flavored Water
2 Cups of sliced strawberries
2 Cubes of frozen ginger (feel free to use fresh, of course)
1/2 cup of Splenda – granulated
Cut up strawberries and slice lemon and add to a pitcher of water and ice cubes. Melt down the frozen ginger cubes by placing them in the microwave for 10-20 seconds. Or add fresh ginger if you prefer. Squeeze the ends of the lemon that you slice into the pitcher of water and add in the 1/2 cup of granulated Splenda. Stir until thoroughly dissolved. Best if served immediately or leave your pitcher in the fridge for fresh infused water all day long!
Watermelon, Mint, + Lime Water
A handful of mint leaves
1/2 cup of watermelon cubed
Place watermelon in a pitcher and top with water. Squeeze in the juice of one lime and a handful of crushed mint leaves. Add ice cubes.

Frozen Fruit Mix
Empty the bag of frozen fruit into a pitcher, cut up the fresh peaches and add them in too (for extra peach flavor), fill with water, and let sit overnight.
Very Berry Lemon Water
1 lb. bag of frozen Berry Medley Mix
Place the frozen berries and 3 lemons cut into slices at the bottom of a pitcher and then top with water. Let the mixture infuse overnight for a pretty pink hue.
Grapefruit + Cilantro Infused Water
1/2 of a large grapefruit
Handful of cilantro
2 Quarts of water
Remove the grapefruit in sections.
Place the sections into your pitcher.
Add in the clean cilantro.
