Citrus-Flavored Water

citrus_flavored_water

Quite often I’ll throw a lemon in my water. Or lemon AND lime when I’m feeling brave. Or maybe I’m just bored. Then my husband threw a twist into the whole thing when he came inside from helping the neighbor with his new concrete wall (ironically separating his world from ours, haha!) and told me about the refreshing drink our neighbor shared: orange- and lemon-flavored water! Never even heard of that combination. So, I made some. And tried it. And loved it. Very refreshing. Add lots of crushed ice and you’ve got yourself a low-cal, refreshing, thirst-quenching summer drink.

Slice any combination of lemons, limes, and/or oranges and add to water. Serve over ice. Serve within a few hours since rinds cause water to be bitter over time.

 

Note: Juice lemons, limes, and/or oranges ahead of time, freeze into ice cubes, and add to water for instantly cold, flavored water. May not be as pretty as fresh slices of fruit but will be fast, efficient, and convenient. Which, let’s be honest, is sometimes more important than pretty.
