Citrus and Herb Infused Water

Citrus and Herb Infused Water


  • 1 Lemon (Sliced into thin rounds, peel on)
  • 1 Orange (Sliced into thin rounds, peel on)
  • 1 Lime (Sliced into thin rounds, peel on)
  • 8 sprigs Thyme (left whole)
  • 1 tablespoon Honey
  • 3 quarts Warm Water


Using the warm water when making this drink helps the citrus fruit and herbs release their oils. The warm water also helps the honey to mix well. If you notice the flavor is too intense, add more water until you are satisfied. Refrigerate and enjoy over ice.


Step 1
Wash all your fruit and Thyme.
Step 2
Slice your fruits into thin round slices leaving the peel on.
Step 3
Fill your pitcher with luke warm water.
Step 4
Add the honey, fruits and herbs. Shake Well.
Step 5
For Best Flavor, let sit for an hour or longer. Serve over ice.

About Shannon @VillageGirlBlog

With my Husband, we raise our two sons and a nephew, three dogs, a cat, four chickens and a large garden on my just under an acre lot in a small village in Southeast Michigan. I am passionate about real food, and eating as local as we can without giving up olive oil, coffee, you know the necessities. Herb gardens and backyard chickens, reading, writing, photography are my other passions. I believe that things will work out eventually, the glass is not only half full but it is refillable.
