Welcome summer and the never ending need for hydration. My husband calls these mixtures I make “Dar water”. Dar water can be a combination of many fruits and plants ranging in all colors. I learned this from my Grandmothers in the south of France.
During the hot summer afternoons we would go in her garden and pick a variety of herbs , vervina, thyme, 3 different kinds of mint, rosemary, cucumber and a lemon from her lemon tree. My grandmother would add all this to a huge jug of water and put glasses out for the afternoon. On other days it would be a combination of watermelon and blood oranges sliced and smashed with mint and lemon. They instilled in me a love for infused water and for the colors and freshness of summer.
Living in the Keys I have access to some of the freshest and juiciest ingredients around. I know you may not have access to all these ingredients where you are, but you can ALWAYS switch things up and come up with your own combinations (which I would love to hear about!!).
