How to Make Herbal Lemon Water
While it’s not rocket science to make this water there are few tips that will make it more enjoyable. Water is good for you and sometimes drinking water for some seems a little tasteless or flat. Not after this recipe, you will be drinking herbal water every day.
Start your herbal water recipe with purified water. Having good purified water will make everything taste better. Another way to increase your odds of drinking herbal water is making fruit or lemon /lime ice cubes. To make these ice cubes, you will need an old fashion ice cube tray that you fill and freeze. Fill each cup with grated lemon and thin lemon slices. Do the same with lime. Add a raspberry or other berry if you desire. Now for the herbs, mint leaves, thyme, rosemary all make great flavors for herbal water. In this recipe I used lemon, grated ginger root, and mint. Ginger is calming and helps with stomach issues, great for sipping water.
Fill a pretty pitcher with crushed ice, herbal ice cubes if you made them, sliced cucumbers (English has less seeds), and lemon slices. Add grated ginger, stir to combine, then chill water at least 4 hours. I like to make this the night before, cover with plastic wrap and enjoy it all day the next day. No sugar or sugar substitutes, just pure water with herbs and citrus.
Hope you will try this recipe. Get creative with how you want to serve your sip.
