Stay hydrated with these 8 Infused Water recipes! These fruit and herb combinations will encourage you to drink more water.

Citrus, berries, melons, fresh ginger, and mint are all good choices. You can float the ingredients freely in water or use an infusion pitcher 

Infused water is best 2 to 4 hours after you’ve made it. Or, you can let it infuse overnight in the refrigerator.

Some ingredients last better than others. With herbs, for example, fresh basil lasts 2 to 3 days but rosemary can last up to a week.
