Refreshing mint and cool, filtered water combine for an easy, 2-minute recipe for hydrating Mint Water!
Cool, Refreshing Mint Water
Hydrating, thirst-quenching, and altogether refreshing: that’s today’s super easy to make mint water!
Just when you thought you’d given up on meeting your water goals for the day (am I the only one who has those??), here comes the best ever mint water.
This mint water is not only refreshing, it also leaves a cool, minty vibe in your mouth. Why do I always find that such a welcome wake-up zinger for those afternoon slumps? Try it and enjoy!
Mint Water Ingredients
With just two simple ingredients, you’re well on your way to making this thirst-quenching recipe!
- Mint – fresh mint leaves are best when bright green without any dark spots, or bruising. Be sure to gently wash and even-more-gently pat dry the mint before using in this recipe.
- Water – make sure to use cold, filtered water for the best taste
How to Make Mint Water
Add ¼ cup of mint to a clean pitcher. Feel free to use this minimalist design pitcher (in my pics), or whatever you have on hand.
Next, grab a muddler (such as the one in this cocktail set) and muddle the mint leaves at the bottom of the pitcher.
You’ll want to press and basically “massage” the mint oils out of the mint leaves, not bruise/mash the mint.
Then, grab the remaining mint and cold water and add it to the pitcher.
Grab the muddler or a stirring spoon and stir the mint thoroughly into the water.
Place the pitcher of mint water into the fridge, and allow to set for a few hours for the flavor infusion to happen.
Stir before serving and enjoy!
Wondering how to customize your mint water for a flavor boost? I know, we all need a little variety to keep life interesting! Try my variations below.
Follow my favorite recipe for cucumber water. It’s a refreshing crowd favorite!
Raspberry Mint Water
This one’s super easy—add ½ to 2/3 cup rinsed, fresh raspberries in the pitcher when adding the rest of the mint and cold water.
Slice 1-2 lemons and deseed. Then, add lemon slices to the pitcher after following this recipe. Allow to sit in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. After, stir and serve.
