Orange & Vanilla Infused Water

Keeping with our hydration theme this week, I’d like to share my new favorite way to jazz up a plain pitcher of water.

By simply infusing a pitcher of water with some fresh orange slices and a bit of vanilla, it becomes a refreshing drink that you’ll want to sip all day long!

Of course, I can’t take credit for this idea. My sister-in-law actually shared it with me after it was a hit at a recent baby shower she attended. Everyone who tastes this water, can’t get enough of it!

I hope you enjoy it as much as we have in our home.

Orange & Vanilla Infused Water
makes 2 liters

Ingredients:

2 liters of filtered water
1 orange, sliced
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, or a scraped vanilla bean

Directions:

Simply combine the orange slices, vanilla and water in a large pitcher (I used this one), and mix well. Allow to infuse in the fridge for at least an hour, then keep chilled in the fridge for a refreshing beverage anytime you like!

Note: This recipe can easily be tweaked to suit your tastes. Use more or less orange and vanilla, as you desire.
