Homemade Vitamin Water (Fruit Infused Water)
Allowing fruit to soak in water for serveral hours allows the flavor and nutrients from the fruit to become infused in the water. This creates a Homemade Vitamin Water that's very refreshing on a hot summer day. Filtered water is best for this because since it's been filtered to remove anything that might affect its purity, it will more readily absorb the flavor and vitamins from the fruit.
