    I keep a large container on ice at work for my colleagues (and me). So far we’ve had: orange/lemon/lime/grapefruit cucumber/honeydew/mint cucumber/mint strawberry/peach/mango/pineapple/mint pineapple/mint watermelon/basil strawberry/lemon strawberry/lime blueberry/blackberry/raspberry/lemon/lime Next, I think I’m going to try: strawberry/basil lemon/cucumber cucumber/lemon/mint/rosemary soon Some of the flavors are much better when made with frozen fruit (berries, peaches for sure). Anything that doesn’t exude much flavor seems to do better if it’s frozen first. And, it’s convenient to just buy some frozen fruit mixtures! We’ve got a lot more people drinking water!

    Great idea, drinking a plain water is really boring for me, it would be help me drink more water during the day, sounds good

    We love fruit infused water. There is always lemon/lime water in the fridge. I’ve made some sparkling berry water for brunch and it was a great alternative to mimosas

    This sounds really good. I do have a water infuser pitcher and am always looking for ways to mix it up with fruits and veggies.
