Ingredients

  • 1/2 gallon water
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 whole apples, thinly sliced

Directions

Place apple slices and cinnamon in the bottom of a tall pitcher, then cover partway with ice. Fill with water and allow flavors to marry in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes before drinking. If you want more apple flavor, you can put the apples through a whole juice juicer (which keeps the pulp and fiber intact), and blend into the water. If you want an extra boost, add a squeeze of lemon.
