Given that it’s berry season and we’re all suckers for strawberries, I’m going to assume that you’ve been throwing away a lot of strawberry tops.
Well don’t. Thanks to Food52, I have recently learnt that strawberry tops make for a delicious and refreshing summer drink.
You just leave them in water overnight and your water has a pleasant, light, fruity taste
I went one better and combined it with mint because, along with berries, mint is another summer must-have in my kitchen.
If you want to switch things up, I’d also recommend trying fresh basil or some lemon/orange rind.
Strawberry & Mint Infused Water (makes 3 cups)
- 3 cups distilled water
- 10-12 strawberry tops
- 1-2 sprigs fresh mint, roughly torn
- Put everything together in a jar or bottle. Chill overnight then strain and enjoy.
