4th of July Water

Make your 4th of July celebration a festive one with this red, white, and blue fruit infused water.
Prep Time: 5 mins
Total Time: 5 mins
Servings: 6 servings

Ingredients
 

  • 10 cups water
  • 1 cup strawberries - sliced
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 2 apples - cut into star shapes (optional)
  • ice

Instructions
 

  • Add all of the ingredients to a large pitcher. Pour in the water. Stir.
  • Serve immediately or let sit in the fridge for several hours to devleop flavor. Serve cold!

Star shaped apples

  • To cut the apples into stars: slice the apples so that the core shows the "seeded star." I cut mine into about 1/4"-1/2" slices, then use a small star cookie cutter to cut out small stars from the apple slices.

Notes

  • Can be served immediately if you wish.
  • Feel free to add more or less fruit to the pitcher. This is more of a "guideline" than a recipe. Have fun with it!
  • Add mint leaves for green color (optional).
  • You can use whatever fruit you have on hand! Cherries would be perfect as would raspberries.
  • Instead of water you can try switching it up by using Sprite, 7-UP or Gingerale.
