Rosemary Citrus Detox Water
One of my favorite finds when I'm at a grocery store is always big, plump, and juicy blood oranges. I love the deep red color of blood oranges, and their sweet and subtle flavor. This water is refreshing, quick, and so good for you!
And delicious, ripe blood oranges are perfect in detox water- they subtly infuse the water with a lovely pink color and lots of delicious, sweet flavor without adding sugar. I decided to kick my fruit infused water recipe up a notch and add some rosemary and cardamom pods for subtle zip- and it was fantastic.
How to make Rosemay Citrus Detox Water
First assemble the following ingredients:
- Water – water is the perfect thing to use to detox your body since its what your body is primarily made of.
- Blood oranges - rinds washed well and sliced thin, I love blood oranges for their flavor and color. You can use traditional oranges if you prefer.
- Lemon - rind well washed and sliced thin, lemons add a bright hit to the water.
- Lime - rind well washed and sliced thin, citrus gives a nice lift.
- Rosemary – rosemary has antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds which help this detox water help your body out.
- Cardamom – cardamom has antioxidant and diuretic properties which make it deal for a detox water.
- Ice – when ready to serve, use ice for a refreshing temperature.
Once you have assembled the ingredients use the following method
Mix everything. In a large pitcher mix all the ingredients and let set at least 2 hours in the refrigerator or at room temperature.
Serve. When ready to serve add the ice and enjoy cold.
Pro tip- make sure to refrigerate and cover your water when not drinking. It's also best to thoroughly wash all fruit if you are infusing water with fruit that still has a peel on to prevent mold growth.
Tips and Tricks for Perfect Rosemary Citrus Detox Water
Use cheesecloth to contain the loose spices. If you don't want the rosemary and cardamon pods in your cup when you pour you can tie them in a little loose bundle of cheesecloth when you add them to the pitcher.
Let it sit for stronger flavor. The water is very subtly flavored, and the flavor will get stronger the longer you let it sit!
This water will stay fresh for 4-5 days in the refrigerator.
