How To Make Thyme Infused Water with Pear?

How To Make One Glass

  1. Place the pear and fresh thyme in a glass
  2. Top with ice
  3. Add 1 cup cold water

How To Make A Pitcher

  1. Place the chopped pear and fresh thyme sprigs in the pitcher
  2. Pour water into the pitcher
  3. Place pitch 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.
  4. When serving, add ice to the glass

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

  • Use ripe pears for the best pear flavor.
  • Always wash produce before using it to make infused water

Frequently Asked Questions

How long can you store infused water?

Infused water will keep for a few days but the fruit or vegetables you have used may disintegrate over time.  Take a look and remove the fruits or vegetables if they appear soggy and unappetizing. 

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 sugar and artificial flavors and coloring.

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. 

How long can infused water stay out of the fridge?

Don’t leave infused water on the counter for more than 2 hours.
