Vitamin water

Last week, at work, I noticed that a lot of people were sick. I was worried that I would get sick so I’ve been trying to do everything I can to avoid it. When I was at the grocery store, I saw some vitamin water and thought maybe it would help. Then I thought of all the sugar and other crap they add to it and I decided to make my own.

Citrus has a lot of vitamin c, so I went with lemon, lime and orange.

I covered the slices with water, let it sit in the refrigerator for a while, and voilà! Tasty, citrusy water.

The longer it sits, the more flavour you get. I made it yesterday and it was delicious. Today, it was a little bitter, so I added some honey. Bliss.

I’m thinking raspberry-cucumber next. Do you have any flavour suggestions?

    this encouraged me to make a glass of fresh lemon juice for me(i’m too lazy to make the above 😉 ) the pictures are so tempting AND refreshing! 😀

    Remove the rind from the lime before adding it in. That should eliminate the bitterness. I often add lemon and/or lime and mint to my water on days that I’m tired of drinking water. Sometimes I add them to fizzy water, an voilà: Virgin Mojito. I’ve not tried it with oranges, but I’ll try that.
