Let the fruits and vegetables sit in water for plenty of time to really infuse their flavors. Preparing and refrigerating on Saturday would be ideal if you wanted to enjoy on Monday. For an additional twist you can also add some seltzer water to quench a craving for carbonation. If you do decide to go that route, it’s recommended that you add seltzer to the mix one glass at a time in order to keep the bubbles extra bubbly. Make this recipe and enjoy a glass anytime you need to relieve some stress!
