Sumer’s Amazing Water

We were invited to our friend’s house for dinner last year and she had this incredible water.  It was refreshing, wonderful, and I have been obsessed with it ever since.  Thank God she told me what was in it.  This calls for orange blossom water, which can be found in most middle eastern markets, but you don’t have to use it.  If you can’t find it, just throw in some more sliced oranges.  Same effect.  The possibilities are endless on this: melon-cucumber, basil with berries, lemon-blueberry-mint.  This is a beautiful presentation for a shower or party or just to fill up your water jar to drink at work.  I promise you will drink more water by making this!


  • 1 gallon purified or spring water
