Wonderfully refreshing and thirst quenching homemade flavored water. Ideal and healthy alternative to bought soda drinks.

Serves: 10    Total time:  65 mins      Preparation time: 5 mins      Chilling time:  60 mins


4-5 thick slices of ginger, peeled
½ small cucumber, washed, cut into thin slices
½ organic lemon, sliced
Juice of ½ lemon
½ organic lime, sliced
Juice of ½ lime
½ nectarine or peach, cut into small pieces
10-15 fresh melissa leaves
2 liters water
1-2 drops of liquid stevia (optional) 


  1. Place all the ingredients into a larger water pitcher and gently mush with the handle of a wooden spoon.
  2. Fill the pitcher with tap water, stir together and refrigerate a few hours to let flavours meld before drinking.
  3. Serve, strained (without any chunks) and well chilled, with the addition of ice.
  4. Add more water to the pitcher one or two more times before it loses flavour. Keeps for up to 3 days.

Easy Recommendation: instead of melissa, you can use fresh mint leaves, substitute lime with slices and juice of the red grapefruit. If you like your water fizzy, add some sparkling mineral water as well.
