This Blueberry Orange water infusion with hints of rosemary manages to be both richly flavoured and oh-so-refreshing — and it requires minimal effort. Just remember that your blueberries must be at their ripest best, and you can use either blood, cara cara, jaffa or navel oranges to create this Summer water infusion. It the absolute thirst quencher!

 

YIELDS
8 CUPS

Ingredients

  • 1 orange medium, washed, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup blueberries washed
  • 2 rosemary stems, washed
  • 3 cups ice
  • 5 cups water cold

Directions

  1. Smash blueberries using a muddler and set aside. If creating a small batch, you could add a small handful of blueberries to a large glass and use your muddler to smash them
  2. Use the muddler to gently press the rosemary sprigs to release the oil and scent]
  3. To a large pitcher, add ice, blueberries, rosemary and orange slices. Finish with cold water
  4. Let the blueberry orange water infusion sit in the fridge for one to three hours. This allows the beautiful flavours to meld together even further. To be honest, we can never wait and enjoy it straight away and refill with water and continue to hydrate through the day.
  5. Pour your blueberry orange water into glasses, add more ice and enjoy. It keeps well in the fridge for a few hours. Any longer, and you're likely to taste the bitterness of the orange rind. See recipes for more storage tips
