Orange Lemon Infused Water
So fresh and citrusy, this water is an everyday favorite. The water’s flavor has the sweetness of orange juice but without the added sugar. You’ll love it, especially if you are seeking an intensely flavored infused water to replace soft drinks or commercial fruit juice.
Recipe for a 32 oz Ball jar: 3 orange slices and 2 lemon slices. Squeeze the juice of any end pieces into the mix. Chill for two hours.

Hi. I had a my first taste of fruit infused water at a Holiday Inn and enjoyed it so much that I decided I wanted to serve that with cake at my wedding reception. I didn’t really know anything about it, so I looked and found a recipe for orange, lemon and lime water. It said to infuse for 2 hours, but I was going to do it overnight. I am glad that I saw your blog, because I would have had a mess with a bitter taste. I want something pretty, tasty and refreshing and I want to make it the day before the wedding. I bought a bunch of 3 quart plastic jars at dollar tree and I will pour the FI water into punch bowls to serve. I was wondering what you would recommend. Should I go with pineapple and strawberry slices? Or should I do the citrus and just remove the fruit after 2 hours? If I do the citrus, do I need to remove the rinds, if I am only going to infuse for 2 hours?

yes, make sure to have them really smell the lemon though as Jacob Contreras, currently in 11th grade 2016-2017 at Idea Mission says so

Hello, I was wondering if I can drink it all the time. Like is there a specific amount? Because I was going to drink a lots everyday and I was wondering if that’s not okay?

Yes, drink all you want, it won’t cause any issues! Though, keep in mind, you can drink too much Water, especially if you chug it fast, but it would require 2+ Liters (Above 64 oz)… Slow down your intake, when your Urine is clear, then you know you’re well Hydrated! 🙂

Is it necessary to cool it down for 2 hours after mixing oranges inside water?

How long does this specific type of infused water last in the refrigerator? I made some yesterday then left it at home. When I got home I went straight to bed. Is it still good to drink? (It’s been in the refrigerator the entire time)

I’ve been drinking 64oz plain water with either lemon or lime every day for a few weeks now. I also joined a weight loss program to be accountable to someone. It sounds refreshing to know I can add orange to my drink..

Every morning I drink warm water lemon.
Throughout the day I drink infused water orange,lemon,ginger. Mint,blueberries. Cucumber,lime,lemon. Each I infuse for at least 6 hours take the fruit out and the water is good for 3 days. Which ever one I drink I drink it the whole day. I’ve lost 4 pounds in 2 weeks. I also only eat fish, broccoli, or salad. Eat popsicles or jello if I need sweets. It works!!
