What do you do if you don’t feel like drinking ‘normal’ water? Right, you make water with lemon. And maybe with cucumber. But why not make it more fun? You can easily make fruit water by adding all kinds of fruit. And of course water with fruit is healthy! We have a nice rainbow recipe for you. Citrus infused water, but different. Read on quickly!
With our rainbow recipes we try to make the world a little more colorful and accepting from the kitchen! Will you help? Share your creations via #rainbowrecipes.
Lemon Infused Water
For this fruit water you need almost all citrus fruits, not just lemon! We use grapefruit, tangerine, lemon and lime.
You can use blood orange instead of grapefruit, if it’s in season. And if you prefer to use orange instead of tangerine, you can do that too.
We like the tangerine, because it is sweeter and is therefore a good counterpart to the bitter grapefruit. You can also always add something sweet (agave, sugar, or syrup) to your fruit water.
Water With Mint
This infused water is with fruit only, but you can of course vary endlessly with fruit, vegetables and herbs! Mint is always a tasty addition, but have you ever thought of adding lavender, rosemary, thyme, basil, or coriander?
Fruity Ice Cubes
You can also make fruit water by adding fruit ice cubes to your water! Or you can freeze citrus slices and use the slices themselves as ice. See more ideas in our recipe for making ice cubes with fruit.

- ½ grapefruit, or blood orange
- 1 tangerine, or ½ orange
- 1 lemon
- 1 lime
- Water, optional: filtered
- Cut all fruit into slices and place them on the bottom of your water jug, from large to small. You can tamp (or squeeze) the slices if necessary, so that the juices are released.
- Fill the jug with (filtered) water. If you want, you can put the jug in the refrigerator for a few hours, so the water absorbs the flavors even better.
- Serve the fruit water with ice cubes. Cheers!
If necessary, freeze the fruit slices, so your fruit is a flavor and ice cube in 1.
