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?

Yummy, that looks very refreshing. You never cease to amaze me!
I’ll make some for when we go to the beach in the summer!
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! 😀
Even adding a few slices of orange or lemon juice makes drinking water more exciting! It’s very refreshing, I can’t wait to drink it in the summertime!
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.
Thanks for the tip! I could tell it was the lime making it bitter, but I wasn’t sure what to do about it. Fizzy water sounds fun too, I’ll try that!
