Stars & Stripes fruit Infused water!
There's nothing that says summer more than watermelon! And there's nothing that feels better on a hot summer's day than a nice, cold, glass of water. So combining both seemed to me to be the absolute most perfect summer concoction!
I wanted to create a festive drink for the 4th of July, so I took it a step further and added fun shapes + additional fruit for that quintessential red, white, and blue look.
Star shaped cookie cutter - Amazon has so many to choose from!
Knife - one that is large enough to cut through a watermelon!
Large pitcher - Mine is from Target!
Slice your watermelon so that you have large circular pieces - about 1/2 - 1 inch thick. Use your star cookie cutter to cut star shapes from the meat of the melon (as shown above). Add watermelon stars + blueberries to your pitcher, fill with water, and let infuse for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Throughout the day the fruit will infuse more and more flavor, so it just keeps getting better and better! Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
Now sit back, relax, and hydrate in style! I can't wait to see your stars & stripes conceptions :)
