Notes

  • Use the freshest orange you can.
  • Squeeze some of the orange slices  so that you'll get the most flavor and color from them .
  • Allow the orange to infuse for at least 30 minutes.
  • Leave them in the pitcher for up to 4 hours but remove them after that.
  • Save the infused water in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Try mixing your orange water with other flavors like lime or raspberry.
  • Do you prefer sparkling water? No problem, use that instead of regular water.
PRO TIP: For a fancy twist, dip the rim of the glass in colored sugar. Its beautiful and adds a bit of sweetness to your day.
