Blackberries – ½ pint
Lemon – 1 sliced
Rosemary – 1 Sprig
Place inside the infuser and insert into the drink maker pitcher. Fill with 2 quarts of water and let sit for 2 – 4 hours in the refrigerator allowing the water to infuse with flavor. Serve with a lemon garnish or spring of rosemary.
Grapefruit – 3 sliced
Watermelon – half of medium watermelon, cubed
Lemon – 2 sliced
½ tsp Agave Sweetener

When filling glasses, have a dish of lemon or grapefruit pieces sitting nearby to garnish each glass prior to serving. You may also dip the rim of the glass in raw sugar to replace the use of Agave sweetener.
