I love cherry limeades from Sonic. Love, love, love them. Actually I love almost anything cherry flavored. Yum!
I was craving fresh cherries the other day. However it is not cherry season so there is no fresh cherries to be found or they are super expensive. I opted to get frozen cherries instead. So when I was deciding what type of infused water I wanted to take to work, I decided that cherry-lime would be a good flavor.
So what is infused water? You soak fruit in water in order to extract the flavor. We all know what is good for you so infusing water is a good way to get your water intake. It’s a natural way to flavor water.
When I was on the Disney cruise, they would have water, lemonade, and ice tea infused with fruit as you came back to the Disney Dream after being at a port of call. I ended up going through the ship security with multiple cups of flavored water and lemonade. So yummy!
Cherry-Lime Infused Water
Stars of the recipe:
- lime, sliced up
- cherries, fresh (pitted) or frozen
- Fill up your container with water.
- Add the cherries and lime.
- Allow the fruit to infuse the water or flavor it. (At least for an hour or two or even overnight.)
So what do I use to infuse my water? I have a Define bottle with a built in strainer. There are other types of bottles that are created for infusing water. However, you can also use a Mason jar. Just take out the pieces of fruit and strain the water so you don’t have chunks of fruit.
