About this recipe: Flavoured water is so much more refreshing and thirst-quenching than some soft drinks you can buy. This flavoured water is infused with cucumber, ginger, lemon balm, citrus and nectarine. The jug can be refilled with water 1 to 2 more times before it loses flavour. Keeps for up to 3 days in the fridge.
