Citrus Bliss Infused Water

The heat is on and I can’t stand it! I hate being hot. Give me 15°C weather any day. I prefer to step outside and feel refreshed and not like I just stepped into an oven. One way I stay cool in the heat and humidity is being drinking lots of water. I like the taste of water and the colder the better. I will admit that it does get a little blah day and day out.

I bought a funky new container at Canadian Tire the other day and thought it would be perfect for some fruit infused water. I have lots of oranges already in my fridge (my addiction) so I picked up some lemons and limes and decided to make citrus water.

It’s basically just ice, cold water, limes, an orange and a lemon, all sliced up nice and pretty. Give it a little stir and that’s it. It’s chilling in the fridge when my thirst hits.

My aunt always said that she likes to drink a glass of lemon water before a meal because it helps her stay slim. I’m going to give it a try, but drink this water instead.

My daughter, Bridget, is also citrus obsessed. This kid will eat a lemon like an orange without batting an eye. No way I could do that. She’s also been enjoying our tasty new water.
