I have always loved putting citrus in my water. It wasn’t until I started volunteering in the lunchroom at our school that I heard the term spa water. The first time I was asked by a child for spa water, I was confused. I had to ask one of the lunch ladies what it was. There at the end of the counter was a large container of water with a variety of fruit inside. That is spa water.
Well, now I felt all fancy since I’d been putting citrus slices in my water for years. Who knew I was cutting edge with my citrus spa water! It’s the easiest thing you will ever make! The second easiest is probably my fresh strawberry lemonade. Citrus spa water is a refreshing choice on a hot day, after a workout or while relaxing poolside or at the beach.
My new favorite, beautiful pitcher holds about four cups of water. My favorite citrus fruits to use for water are lemons and limes, though you could add orange slices too. Sometimes I like to mix up the fruits. Other favorite combinations include strawberry and lemon, strawberry lime, 3 berry consisting of strawberry, raspberry, and blueberry, and pineapple.

This is such a refreshing way to drink water and I love pitcher
I attempted lemon water a while ago but it came out way too strong. Thanks to your recipe I realize I needed to use way more water! Thanks for sharing! Can’t wait to do this tomorrow.

This sounds so perfectly refreshing!
I just have to shake my head with spa water. To me, it’s just flavored water or infused water. Spa water! LOL I love your pitcher, btw. I might have to get one for myself and make my own infused water.
Love the pitcher! I drink tons of water, it definitely gets boring at times. Great way to liven it up!

Since I’m at the spa today this sounds perfect! I’ve always been a fan of citrus in my water as well.
Easy peasy and so refreshing! Love that you heard the term from a child!
