Citrus spa water is refreshing anytime. Serve with a meal, after a workout or enjoy while reading a good book.
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.
Lemon and lime slices for 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.
