  1. Place ice cubes and salt in an large Ziploc bag

Handful strawberries

Handful raspberries

Handful blueberries

One lemon, sliced


Gently wash the raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries.

Slice up the strawberries.

Drop the fruit into a glass bottle or jug a few pieces at a time, alternating between fruits so that they are well mixed.

Fill the bottle to the top with cold water.

Once the water has all been drunk, you can continue to fill and refill the fruit-filled jug all day long.

Keep it in the fridge to keep it chilled.
