I thought I’d try a flavored water with a green theme, since St. Patrick’s Day is coming up! But of course, this water is great any time of the year. You mostly taste the lime in this, but the kiwifruit and pear slices make the pitcher of water look so nice! 🙂 I think this water tastes best the same day you make it, but you’ll want to refrigerate it a few hours before serving so the water has more flavor. Use organic produce if you can when making this.
PEAR, LIME, KIWIFRUIT WATER by NancyCreative
Makes a large pitcher (half gallon) of flavored water
- 8 cups of water (I used 2 cups of sparkling water mixed in with 6 cups of regular water to give it a slight fizziness–see note below*)
- 1 large organic pear, cut into thin slices
- 2 limes, cut into thin slices
- 2 kiwifruit, cut into thin slices
Fill pitcher with 8 cups of water. Add slices of pear, lime, and kiwifruit, and stir all ingredients together in the pitcher. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving (the slices of kiwifruit tend to settle at the bottom, so you will need to stir before serving to mix all the fruit evenly). When ready to serve, add ice cubes to pitcher and stir or add ice to individual glasses and pour the flavored water over the ice.
*For a fizzy water drink, use Seltzer water or natural sparkling water (like Perrier) instead of regular water, or use some of each (do not use Club Soda or Tonic Water, as one is high in sodium and the other is sweetened with high fructose corn syrup).
Have you tried making any uniquely-flavored water lately?

This looks delicious and very refreshing!
Sounds so refreshing! Love the festive take. How fancy! 🙂
Thanks, Lisa! Adding some colorful fruit makes drinking water a little more fun! 🙂
Definitely! Especially nice to add a little excitement now because it’s harder to drink enough water when it’s so cold outside!
Wow this looks so refreshing. I went ahead and saw and read the recipes of all your flavoured waters and absolutely fell in love with the pictures and what an amazing way of having water, delicious and healthy Xx
Yes, it’s easier for me to drink water if I can find a way to make it a little more interesting! 🙂
This looks so refreshing!!! Love it!
This would be perfect for a spring or summer bbq, Nancy! So bright and pretty!
I would love a glass of this right now. You make me want to get out there and enjoy the sun. Might have to wait on that whole sun thing coming our from under the clouds but I can surely enjoy this drink today. Do you like cucumber water too? I enjoyed that the other day and it was really refreshing.
Yes, I love cucumber water! Especially in the summer!
I’d love to try the sparkling version!
