Blackberry, Clementine and Clove Infused Water Recipe
- 8 blackberries
- 4 cloves
- 2 clementines
- 2 cups of water
- In a small bowl, crush the blackberries with the back of a spoon. Scrape the crushed blackberries, along with their juice, into a small saucepan, then add the cloves. Thinly slice one of the clementines and add this to the pan. Cut the remaining clementine in half, squeeze the juice over everything, then add the water. Simmer over a low heat for five to ten minutes then carefully pour into mugs before drinking.
- Alternatively, place all of the prepared ingredients in a small teapot, pour over two cups of boiling water and leave to infuse for five to ten minutes.
This infusion is perfect for the winter months when clementines are in season and at their best. Drink while nibbling on a warm mince pie to restore your sanity after a long day of Christmas shopping.
