Lemon Infused Water

As the summer heat is fast approaching and the temperatures outside are rising, I’m constantly trying to find ways to stay hydrated. If you’re anything like me, the taste of plain water can sometimes be boring, and you just need a hint of something to change your routine.

One of my favorite ways to add flavor to my ice water is infusions with fresh fruits.

Lemon infused water is the perfect blend of zesty freshness, plus the health benefits, making it a fantastic addition to your daily routine.

This easy-to-make drink not only quenches your thirst but offers a burst of vitamin C and helps with digestion.

This refreshing drink will leave you feeling revitalized and ready to tackle the day.

Benefits of Lemon Infused Water

  1. Hydration: When summer rolls around, it becomes crucial to stay hydrated, and this lemon-infused water is a refreshing way to help you maintain that hydration.
  2. Digestive Benefits: Yep, that’s right, something as simple as lemon can help with our digestion. You are more likely to drink lemon infused water because of its taste, and hydration is essential for digestion. It also helps relieve symptoms of indigestion by soothing the digestive tract. I mean who doesn’t love a flavorful water that also has additional digestive benefits?
  3. Skin Health: Skin benefits are probably my favorite health benefits. Lemons have antioxidants and vitamin C that are great for our skin!

Now, do you need any more reason to make lemon-infused water, or are you sold now?


Lemons: For this recipe, you’ll need fresh lemons. When picking out your lemons, make sure to pick bright yellow lemons that do not have green or brown spots. The lemon should be firm but have a slight give to it. You do not want a soft or mushy lemon.

Water: You can use tap water from your sink, but I highly recommend filtered water for the health benefits. You can also use sparkling water if you prefer a little extra bubble.

Add-ins: To spice up your lemon water, you could consider adding mint leaves, cucumber slices, or berries.


Cutting Board: You’ll need a cutting board to cut up your lemons. My favorite cutting boards are wooden cutting boards. You can find some of my favorites here.

Knives: Lemons can be very firm, you’ll want to make sure you have a sharp knife for this recipe. I love my pearl white Cutco set.

Drink Dispenser: I love my drink dispenser but you can also use a pitcher if you prefer.

Prep Time 10 minutes

  • Top with 3 cups of ice.
  • Refrigerate to let infuse for at least an hour before serving.
  • Remove lemons after 4 hours. This will help prevent your water from become bitter.


How long can I keep it in the fridge?

You can store lemon-infused water in your fridge for up to 3 days. After that, the flavor may change and become stronger. I recommend drinking it within the first 48 hours for the best flavor.
