Fruit water is our simplest summer cooler (we’ll be sharing more tomorrow) and our favorite. No sugar, no sweeteners, no chemicals and no calories, just refreshing summer fruit and cold water. You will be shocked at how much fruit and herb flavor seeps into your Fruit Water as it sits in the fridge.
These recipes are the variations we love best, but have fun concocting your own. Let us know if you create a winner!

Raspberry, Ginger and Thai Basil
¾ cup fresh raspberries

Fill a glass pitcher with fresh cold water and add a handful of each ingredient. Chill 4 hours or overnight to give the fruit time to flavor the water. Fruit water will taste delicious all day.
