Spa water: basil-infused lemon waterJune 10, 2014
Have you ever been to a spa and been served a refreshing water infused with fresh fruits and herbs? It’s nice, isn’t it?
Most people don’t realize just how simple it is to whip up a batch of this spa water themselves. In fact, it’s ridiculously easy. And the variations are endless.
Here I am sharing with you one of my favorite versions of spa water: the basil lemon water.
Spa water: basil-infused lemon water
- 5 basil leaves
- juice of 1 lemon
- pitcher full of cold water
- Throw all ingredients in a pretty glass pitcher. Put in the refrigerator to chill.
- Serve ice cold.
If you prefer, you can always sweeten this water with a homemade sugar syrup or a liquid steviasweetener.
To remain true to the original nature of spa water (healthy and refreshing), I opt not to sweeten my water. It’s tart and lovely on a warm summer day! Perfect thirst-quencher, if you ask me.
