The idea of infused water came when I came across a web page which was about infused honey. I thought, why not water? So here I came up with a watermelon infused water recipe. I have the method in the next steps.
Little secret: if I was going to make this again I would totally leave out the mint and chervil. It’s up to you try it this way n other way too, you never know which one you’ll like :)
Step 1: What to Add:
Place 4 cups cubed watermelon (about 1 ¼ pounds; lightly mashed), 6 sprigs of mint (lightly crushed) and 6 sprigs of chervil (lightly crushed) in a pitcher.
Step 2: Done!!!!
For still infused water, add 2 quarts of water. For sparkling water, add 1 quart of seltzer during prep and a second quart just before serving.
Refrigerate 2-4 hours to allow the ingredients to infuse. Stir well and strain, discarding the solids.
For serving, add fresh watermelon and mint sprigs for garnish and plenty of ice.
The infused water will keep refrigerated for up to 2 days.
