Plum and Lavender Water

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

Ingredients

  • 5-8 ripe plums
  • 1 spring of fresh lavender

 
What You'll Need

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

 

Method

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 lavender sprig to your jug/pitcher   

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

3. Remove the stones from your plums, cut into quarters and drop into your jug/pitcher, press and twist your fruit to release the 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!
