  • 4 lemons
  • 4 cups cold water (1 litre)
  • 4 cups cold sparkling water (or regular water) (1 litre)


  1. Wash your lemons thoroughly and then slice them into thin slices discarding the ends. Remove all the seeds (be thorough removing the seeds to avoid bitter water).

  2. Add lemon slices to a pitcher and top with 4 cups of water.

  3. Refrigerate and infuse for at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours.

  4. Right before serving add 4 cups of cold sparkling water (or plain water) to the pitcher and serve over ice cubes with lemon slices frozen in them and a sprig of mint.

  5. Make sure to remove the lemon slices from the pitcher after a maximum of 4 hours to avoid the lemon infused water from becoming bitter.
