Loved it! This is a great way to convince your kids to drink more water. No sugar no chemicals and they get to choose their flavours and the amounts of each. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

Very refreshing on a hot day! I find these infused waters that have citrus in them to be slightly on the bitter side which we don't mind at all. My husband LOVED this and asked me to keep a pitcher of this in the fridge all summer. Read More
