Scented water for summer

My mum’s scented water for summer

Hi everyone!

Because it’s summer here in the Northern Hemisphere and because in Italy it’s bloody hot, I decided to share with you the scented water my Mum has been making lately. We all know how important it is to drink water non-stop, so I will not bore you with this, as I’m sure this is already engrained in everyone’s mind!

This recipe is super-easy and you just need three ingredients, plus water of course. You can make it in the morning and drink it through the day. It’s also a nice healthy drink, because lemon, ginger and mint help with your digestive system. That in turn helps to burn fat faster.


You will need:

  • Around a litre of water
  • Fresh mint leaves (the more the better)
  • The juice of one lemon
  • Fresh peeled ginger (a few cubes)


How to do it

First you have put the water in a pot to boil. When it’s boiling add the peeled-ginger pieces. Let it boil for around 15 minutes.

Once the 15 minutes is up, you can let it cool down for a while. Then take the ginger out and pour the water in in a big jar or in a big plastic bottle. You can now add the mint leaves and the lemon juice.

After it has cooled down fully (it will take a while!) you can put it in the fridge, leaving the mint leaves in so the water can really take on their flavour.

Et voilà, this scented water is ready to be enjoyed and provide a bit of refreshment on a boiling hot day.


I hope you have a great day and that you enjoyed reading this.

Let me know if you decide to give it a try, I’ll be flattered!
