This has been my favorite refreshment this summer. While I have always liked lemon water, you know, a slice of lemon in water restaurant style, this takes it to a whole new level.
Early this summer, I went to a local salon and spa for a pedi. They had three beverage dispensers full of water and ice. Two of the dispensers contained citrus fruits – one lemons and limes, the other oranges. I tired both. Ahhhh….
I don’t have a beverage dispenser, but I wanted to recreate this drink at home. So, I grabbed this wide mouthed quart jar I had saved from eating my mom’s canned tomatoes, added lemon and lime slices, ice and water and voila! I let it sit for a couple minutes and then pour. Since it’s just a quart, I need to add water back after I take some out. This sits in my fridge all day so it’s cold and refreshing anytime. At the end of the day, I throw away the fruit and start all over the next day.
What is your favorite summer refreshment?
