How To Make Raspberry Infused Water

Ingredients for one glass

  • 10 raspberries (cleaned)
  • 1 slice of Lemon

  • 1 cup of water (cold)

How to make Raspberry Infused Water – 1 glass

How to make a pitcher of Raspberry Infused Water

  • Place the raspberries and lemon slices in the pitcher
  • Pour water into the pitcher
  • Place the pitcher in the refrigerator to allow the flavors to infuse. 
    • I recommend anywhere from 1 – 8 hours.  The longer it sits, the more flavor you will get.
  • Add ice to the glass upon serving. 

Feel free to add more raspberries or fresh lemon if you prefer!  The great news about this refreshing water is that you can easily adjust it to your taste.

Raspberry Infused Water Variations

  • Change up the fruit – really any fruit will work well; strawberries, blackberries, grapes, lemons, lime, peaches… the options are endless
  • Try a vegetable based water and add sliced cucumbers 
  • Use different herbs or greens like basil, parsley, lavender or watercress
  • Put some spices in  – chopped fresh ginger or a pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Use sparkling water instead of tap water

Tips and Tricks

  • Use fresh fruit where possible
  • Let the water infuse as long as you can for the most intense flavor
  • Try an infusion pitcher for a pretty table centerpiece  
  • Place the glasses or pitcher in the fridge while you clean and chop the fruit so they are cold when you add the water and fruit

How Long Can You Store Infused Water?

Infused water will keep for a few days but the fruit you have used may disintegrate over time. 

Can You Freeze Infused Water?

Leftover infused water will make great ice cubes! You can then use the cubes for other infused water or to import some flavor to plain tap water.  Remove the cubes from the tray and place in a plastic bag and store in the freezer. 

Are There Health Benefits To Infused Water?

Drinking infused water is  a great alternative to soda and other sweetened drinks which may be high in calories. 

Drinking infused water is a great way to increase your water consumption if drinking regular tap water does not appeal to you. 

Fruit is a great source of vitamins and fiber so eating the fruit will increase your intake.  

Do I Have To Add Cold Water?

Yes it is best to use cold water to prepare this drink.
