Stay Hydrated with Homemade Electric Pressure Cooker Lemon Infused Water!
I know some people don’t have access to water that tastes amazing on its own, so I wanted to give you a recipe to make yours taste better.
This lemon infused water recipe makes plain old water taste fancy and is just as good as those expensive flavored waters.
Why Flavor Water?
We’re lucky to have well water, that gets super filtered and even goes through a reverse osmosis unit.
Our water tastes great plain, but if you are on city water even adding a slice of plain lemon can help it taste better.
I think you can find a little time to make a Lemon Infused Water or one of the other variations I list in this post.
Other Instant Pot Drinks to Try
Can I Infuse Water without an Instant Pot?
Of course you can. But chances are you’re here looking for another way to use your electric pressure cooker. Plus Instant Pot infused water takes less time so you can enjoy it sooner than traditionally infused.
You can just let the fruit and herbs steep in the water overnight in your fridge if you’re looking for an alternative method to make fruit infused water. Or you can get a water infuser that will give you all the flavor with none of the mess.
What can you do with fruit infused water?
- drink it plain from your favorite water bottle
- add sparkling water to make a “dry” soda
- make it into a mocktail with or without sparking water
- use it as a cocktail base – I recommend gin or vodka for this one
- add a few dashes of bitters to elevate it into a drink to remember!
How long does fruit infused water last?
Depending on the freshness of the fruit, about 3 to 5 days in the fridge. You can pour the flavored water into ice cube trays and freeze it to make it last even longer.
If you freeze it, thaw over night in the fridge to have your flavored water ready to drink the next day.
What Other Combinations Can I Make Instant Pot Infused Water with?
The variations are truly limitless. Here are a few of my favorites. Make sure to try my Instant Pot Strawberry Rosemary Infused Water too. You can even make it with just the tops from your strawberries!
- orange zest and pulp with mint
- go all citrus with lemon, lime, and orange zest and pulp with no herbs at all
- pineapple hibiscus
- citrus zest and berry of your choice
- lemon zest and cucumber slices
- try other herbs like basil, lavender, and flavored mints
