Fruity Water

Fruity Water is very simple and purely refreshing! It is also versatile with the endless combinations of fruit you can use to flavor water.

I originally saw a recipe similar to this in a summer issue of Everyday with Rachael Ray. You can prepare Fruity Water with any fresh fruit of choice. I used 2 lemons and 1 kiwi. I washed and sliced the lemons, then peeled and sliced the kiwi. Place the sliced fruit in the bottom of a pitcher and fill with water (about 1-2 quarts of water for the amount of fruit I used). Let the pitcher of Fruity Water chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before serving. Use a small strainer as you pour the Fruity Water into glasses to remove any fruit particles.

If you don't serve immediately (or you want to keep a pitcher in your fridge to enjoy over the span of a few days), remove the fruit after a day to avoid the water tasting like the fruit rind.
