Summer is right around the corner and it’s my favorite time to make refreshing drinks. One of my family’s favorite Summertime drink is this Strawberry Orange Lime Infused Water. It’s so simple to make, yet so delicious and it’s a perfect way to stay hydrated for those hot Summer months. So here’s how I make Strawberry Orange Lime Infused Water!
First, and foremost I always have our Brita pitcher filled and ready with water. Drinking filtered water instead of bottled can help reduce plastic waste. With Brita, you can replace up to 1,800 single-use plastic bottles a year. Plus, drinking Brita filtered water means you’ll be reducing 99% of the Lead in your water along with Mercury, Chlorine, Benzene, & more.
We have the Monterey Pitcher and Longlast Filter which is the longest lasting Lead removing filter. It lasts 6 months and filters out odors and impurities for better tasting water.
Here’s what you’ll need to make the infused water:
- Strawberries, sliced
- Oranges, sliced
- Limes, sliced
- Water from your Brita Pitcher
Making the water is so simple. Just add the fruit to a glass and pour water over it. The longer the water sits with the fruit the more flavor it will have.
This summer I’m hoping to focus on being sustainable, and most importantly completely eliminating the use of plastic bottle water in our home. So, of course I’ll always have my Brita pitcher filled and to keep my kids drinking plenty of water, I’ll make sure to keep fruit sliced and ready.
Not only is using my Brita pitcher a cost effective solution to bottled water, but it really contributes to eliminating plastic waste, and if you didn’t already know, 2,000 plastic water bottles are used every second in the U.S. So live #BetterWithBrita with me!
With the help of Brita, I’m ditching bottled water this summer as a step towards staying sustainable. Learn more about Brita Longlast and find out how to get it HERE.
