When I lived in Paris, there was this wonderful Indian restaurant down the street that always put long sprigs of mint inside their carafes d’eau. I loved it because the subtle minty flavor was a nice palate cleanser between bites of their spicy curries. I started growing mint in my Aerogarden, and it’s really taking off. I have a few other plans for the mint, but this water infusion is definitely the easiest.
Just fill up a water jug, clip a long sprig of fresh mint, put the mint inside of the water jug, and keep the water jug in the refrigerator for about 24 hours. After that time, the mint should have lightly infused the water. This mint water is the perfect refreshment on a hot summer day because the mint continues to make your mouth tingle for a few minutes, even after the water is gone.
What is your favorite water infusion?
- Fresh mint
Sounds very refreshing. I like lemon or lime in my water. I will try the mint.
That’s a very pretty bottle.
Home Goods! It’s hard to clean though :/
My favorite infused water of the moment is Cucumber! Sooooo refreshing! I make it the same way as your Mint water. Just peel the cuke first. I wonder about Cucumber-Mint water?
Cucumber-mint water sound so spa-like! I definitely want to try it 🙂
