Directions:

  • Choose which recipe you’re making — or come up with your own combination — and gather all of the ingredients. 
  • Place the fruit, herbs, and/or spices in the bottom of one of the glass jars, and muddle with a wooden spoon. (That basically means mash up the fruit in the bottom of the jar to release some of the flavor-filled juices.)
  • Fill the jar with water and give it a taste. (You can also fill the jar with seltzer water for a fizzy treat.) If you’d like something a bit sweeter, try adding some agave (and mix until dissolved).
  • Enjoy as-is or refrigerate overnight for maximum flavor. 

*You can substitute regular water with coconut water for a sweeter taste
