2 Fruity Flavored Water Recipes for Summer

Here in the northeast the temperatures are already rising and you can tell that summer is just around the corner. I love to drink water but sometimes it gets boring or doesn't quench my thirst. That is when I turn to homemade flavored water recipes like the two that I am featuring on the blog today.

These two recipes are courtesy of the great folks over at Jeju 16 Water.


2 liters of Jeju 16 Water
5-6 cucumbers sliced and cut in half
½ cup cubed watermelon

Drop cucumber and watermelon in pitcher, fill with water and let sit in fridge for 30 minutes. You can refill this several times throughout the day just be sure to let sit for 30 minutes for the water to become infused.

Note: Cucumbers are great for a quick pick-me-up! Leave the skin on, they are packed with vitamin B + C and are great for re-hydrating the body quickly.


2 liters of Jeju 16 Water
1 large lemon, sliced
1 large lime, sliced
2 cups of multicolored frozen grapes
¼ cup cilantro leaves

In a large pitcher, pour water over citrus fruit. Refrigerate at least two hours. Serve in glasses over ice and garnish with an orange slice and sprig of cilantro.

Note: Cilantro/Coriander is a great source of vitamins, calcium and potassium and has been used for centuries to heal many ailments
