Easy Citrus Sparkling Water

This sparkling water is an easy beverage to whip up for the holiday season. For 1 gallon, all you need is:

  • 2 oranges
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 stalks of fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 gallon sparkling water
  • 5 cups ice
  • plain water

The flavor of the cinnamon sticks and rosemary take a while to infuse, while the orange flavor infused into the water rather quickly. Personally, I think it’s a good idea to let the cinnamon and rosemary sit in a few cups of water & a handful of ice cubes a a few hours before serving the beverage. About 30-60 min before serving, slice the oranges thin and add them to the water mixture. Add about 4 cups ice, 4 cups water, and fill the rest of the gallon with sparkling water. If needed, this mixture can easily be replenished with more ice and sparkling water as the night goes on.
