Do you want to add flavor to a cold glass of water? For a refreshing summer beverage, make our infused water with strawberries, lemon, and basil.


  • 8 strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced with seeds and ends removed
  • 6 fresh basil leaves
  • 2 quarts filtered water
  • Ice, for serving


  1. Place the strawberries, lemon, and basil in the bottom of a large pitcher. Pour the water on top.
  2. Cover the top of the pitcher tightly with a lid or plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2-8 hours.
  3. Pour the water into individual glasses filled with ice and serve immediately. You may strain out the fruit and basil before serving if desired.
  4. For longer storage, strain out the fruit and basil after the initial infusion. The infused water will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
