Atlanta is also known as Hotlanta for a reason. No matter what the weather is anywhere else it always seems to be hotter here, maybe it’s the asphalt jungle but boy is it hot. The heat wouldn’t be so bad but the humidity that often accompanies it makes the air feel so sticky. We did yard work on Sunday and all I could think about as I was covered in sweat and dirt were these little gems.
I love to make infused water with fruit, citrus and herbs. When I was red faced and felt like my body was an oven I was really disappointed that I didn’t have any infused water in my refrigerator. Some things are never around when you really need them…
After taking a cold shower to cool off I hopped out and put these little beauties in the freezer immediately. Here are some of the combinations I whipped up with what I had on hand. These infused ice cubes are perfect in a tall glass of water or any other complimenting beverage.
Strawberry + Lime
Lemon + Rosemary
Coconut Water + Lime
Other combinations that I love:
Strawberry + Lime or Lemon
Orange + Basil
Raspberry + Lime
Grapefruit + Orange
Lemon + Ginger
