Homemade Vitamin Water: Basil and Lemon Infusion

July 11, 2013

I drink a lot of water. A lot of water. I love the crisp taste of ice water and the mellowing of warm lemon water.  Mixing up flavors in water is a great way to make your recommended daily intake go quicker and more fun! Adding in basil and lemon will give your water antioxidants, aid in digestion, and give skin a dewy glow.

  • 5 - 10 basil leaves (I like mine heavily infused with basil. Add less leaves if desired)
  • Half of a lemon, sliced
  • Filtered water, flat or bubbly
Add the basil leaves to your glass or Mason jar and muddle the leaves with the back of a spoon.  Add in the lemon slices and fill with water.  Drink immediately or let refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow the flavors to infuse.  Enjoy!
