Refreshing Minty Ginger Lemongrass Water

We all know that hydration is one of the keys to performance in the gym and a way to feel full in between meals. While canned fizzy water gets all the hype, infusing your own water at home is a great way to keep hydrated and reap the health benefits of fresh ingredients. Plus, homemade infused waters can be made in big batches, are totally customizable, and perfect for using up that last little knob of ginger or whatever else you have around!

For the best results, let the water infuse overnight. However, the process can be sped up by using hot water and letting the ingredients steep for a half-hour before straining and cooling.
