Aside from curing old sea limeys of scurvy for centuries, citrus gives us our electrolytes, vitamin C and cleanses our bodies as we all know, but Ginger on the other hand has a completely different arsenal in store for us.

Ginger is an anti-inflammatory, nausea staving, cancer killing, digestion kicking, cold fighting, soar throat healing super food. And the best part is that's only half of it.

Water has never been so good for you and ON THE CHEAP!

Ingredients

How to Make Citrus Ginger Infused Water

Step-by-Step

  1. Not adding water yet, slice lemon in halves and gently squeeze juice of one half of the lemon into the jar as not to completely destroy the half. Cut both the squeezed and the remaining half into thin rings no thicker than 1/4" and drop those in the jar as well.
  2. Chop peeled ginger root into thin slivers to expose as much surface as possible and drop into the jar. Coin or stick shape will do fine.
  3. Pour water over the lemons and ginger giving it a good stir and then let sit in the fridge for a minimum of 30 min. Overnight is best. Serve cold and often. Cheers!
  4. ((Have fun with this concept. Adding scoops of melon, coins of cucumber, sprigs of mint, sprigs of parsley, orange slices and many other refreshing fruits, veggies or herbs will only make the water more exciting, refreshing and healthy.)) Do not add sugar!
