Fresh Infused Water

Are you ready for summer? I’ve got to admit, I’m not a fan of the whole uncomfortable heat, sweaty mess going ons of summer, so getting through it means LOTS of cool drinks, smoothies, and fantasies of me being poolside drinking said drinks and smoothies.
Instructions :Prep time: 10 mins Total time: 10 mins
1. Put oranges, lemon and cucumber in the water pitcher. Using a long spoon, gently mash fruits/veggies; this will release more flavor.
2. Take the mint, and gently mash it to release the natural oils; add to the pitcher.
3. Add water to the pitcher, and stir to begin the infusion process.
4. Drink/serve immediately, or store in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
*This water also tastes great when infused overnight; if doing so, consider removing the rinds from the lemon and oranges. This will cut down on the bitterness.
Ingredients :2-3 liters water
2 large oranges, sliced
1 lemon, sliced
½ large cucumber, sliced
1 handful of fresh mint
