4-6 cups fresh, filtered water (or sparkling mineral water for extra zip and a dose of minerals)
1 cup berries (I like strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries, but pick whatever looks good at the store)
½ - 1 whole lemon (or lime), sliced
1- inch knob of ginger, minced
5-8 Mint Leaves, lightly crushed
Wash the berries and rinds of lemons/limes well first, then prepare and cut up all fruits.
Mix all ingredients in a large glass pitcher, and let mixture sit in the fridge for at least one hour to allow fruits to infuse.
You may choose to strain the fruit before serving so it doesn’t “dump” into your glass.
If using sparkling water, ensure that you put a cover on your pitcher and enjoy by the end of the day, otherwise it will be flat!
