Infused Water Wednesday :: Lime + Mint

Today's infused water: Lime + Mint {Mojito anyone?}

Ingredients {to fit in the Chilaqua 24 oz. bottle}:
  • 1 lime, rind removed, diced
  • Several sprigs of mint, crushed/cut to release the flavor

Verdict: Good!

It did remind me of a mojito. The only trick is that you HAVE to have fresh limes and mint. If either isn't fresh, then the water tastes bitter and/or sour. So it doesn't last but 1 or 2 days. The first time I tried it, I filled the Chilaqua infuser basket to the brim, and the flavor overpowered the water. I don't fill it as tightly packed and not necessarily filled to the top, and that seems to be the right balance for the flavor.
