Cherry-Lemon Infused Water


Here's a recipe we enjoy making in the summer when we want to up our water intake. It's also a fun drink to make for a girls' manicure party.

1 cup pitted black cherries
2 lemons (or limes), cut into half-slices
1/4 cup fresh basil
water
ice cubes

Place cherries, lemons, and basil in a half-gallon jar. Fill with cold water. Allow to chill in refrigerator for 15-20 minutes. Pour into glasses filled with ice cubes. Enjoy!

Tips: Add fruit to jar, and slightly mash with a wooden spoon to bring out more flavor. Also, gently rub herbs together before adding to mixture to bring out more herbal essence. 

Other combinations you might try: 
strawberries, lemons, and mint; blueberries, oranges, and lavender; or cucumbers, grapefruit, and rosemary.
