Pear and Sage Water

(hint: ensure your fruit is nice and ripe, to avoid flavourless and overly bitter drinks)


  • 3-4 ripe pears
  • 2-3 sage leaves

What You'll Need

  • A jug or pitcher
  • A wooden spoon, muddler, or rolling pin
  • Fresh tap water
  • Ice



It is very easy to get bored with water, so why not make it a little more interesting by adding a few healthy, simple and natural ingredients. It’ll take you a matter of minutes to create these waters and can be made in large batches and kept in the fridge.

Be adventurous with your flavours and gain a wide pallet for combinations ensuring that there is always a flavour you can combine throughout the year to avoiding having to use bitter and expensive fruit that is no longer in season.  

1. Add the sage leaves to your jug/pitcher

2. Press down and twist the sage leaves using your wooden spoon/muddler/rolling pin. The aim is to bruise the leaves to release plenty of flavour but not to pulverise them into pieces

3. Thinly slice your pears, and drop into the jug/pitcher. Press and twist your fruit to release the sweet flavours

4. Fill the jug/pitcher with ice cubes

5. Fill with tap water to the brim

6. Give a good stir with a large table spoon

7. Secure lid/cover with cling film and place in the fridge

8. Allow it to chill nicely and infuse the flavours for an hour or two

9. Your ice will filter out  fruit bits when pouring your glass, although if your ice has melted, simply pour your naturally flavoured water through a sieve into your glass

10. Sit back and enjoy!
