This Blueberry Orange water infusion with hints of rosemary manages to be both richly flavoured and oh-so-refreshing — and it requires minimal effort. Just remember that your blueberries must be at their ripest best, and you can use either blood, cara cara, jaffa or navel oranges to create this Summer water infusion. It the absolute thirst quencher!

Ingredients

  • 1 orange medium, washed, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup blueberries washed
  • 2 rosemary stems, washed
  • 3 cups ice
  • 5 cups water cold

Instructions

  • Smash blueberries using a muddler and set aside. If creating a small batch, you could add a small handful of blueberries to a large glass and use your muddler to smash them
  • Use the muddler to gently press the rosemary sprigs to release the oil and scent
  • To a large pitcher, add ice, blueberries, rosemary and orange slices. Finish with cold water
  • Let the blueberry orange water infusion sit in the fridge for one to three hours. This allows the beautiful flavours to meld together even further. To be honest, we can never wait and enjoy it straight away and refill with water and continue to hydrate through teh day.
  • Pour your blueberry orange water into glasses, add more ice and enjoy. It keeps well in the fridge for a few hours. Any longer, and you're likely to taste the bitterness of the orange rind. See recipes for more storage tips

Notes

  • Make sure your blueberries are nice and ripe but not on the verge of going bad. Otherwise, your water infusion won't taste the same.
  • You want the fruits and rosemary to be as fresh as possible to exude all their delicious flavour
  • Make sure you wash the fruits and rosemary very well to remove any dirt or debris.
  • If you're not planning to enjoy this within 3-4 hours, it's best to remove the orange slices and rosemary sprigs. Then simply store the infused water in an airtight container in the fridge and enjoy it over a few days.
