The following recipe makes 1 liter, so if you have a 2 liter container double the ingredients, and so on.

  • ½ orange
  • 1 inch chunk of ginger
  • ½ cup ice

Remove the skin from the ginger with a spoon or vegetable grater and slice into coin sized rings. Add to the bottom of your pitcher.

Slice the orange into wedges or rings and add to your pitcher gently squeezing (just a little) to help release the juices as it sets.

Top with ice, this part is important whether you enjoy your water cold or at room temperature as it holds down the fruit to better infuse the water.

Place the pitcher in the fridge, or on your counter top if you like room temperature, for one hour before serving.

When you have poured ½ of the infused water from your pitcher, fill back to the top with water. This will help preserve the flavor so you won’t have to start over again when you finish the pitcher. Fill up, up to 6 times in a day, or until the flavor is lost.

Store in your fridge for up to 24 hours.
