Introduction

This is a much nicer, summery version of water.... for when drinking water by itself gets a little dull. This is a much nicer, summery version of water.... for when drinking water by itself gets a little dull.
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    3 Litres (12 cups) of water (bottled or tap, depending on what you drink)
    1 Orange
    1 Lemon
    2 sprigs of mint

Directions

In a large jug or bottle, put 3 litres of water... this can be boiled, bottled or tap depending on preference.

Cut the lemon into small segments, then cut each segment (including the peel) into pieces roughly an inch square. Do the same to the orange.

Remove the mint leaves from the sprigs, rinse.

Combine all ingredients.

Chill in a refrigerator, and drink when required. I tend to use a small strainer to keep bits of fruit and mint out of my drink. This makes a refreshing version of water that has a summery kick. Great for when regular water gets boring.

Number of Servings: 12
