How long can you leave orange slices in water?

The orange slices can stay about 12 hours in the water. After that, the water will start to taste bitter.

While the water tastes better from being refrigerated and enhances the flavor, you don’t want to leave it too long.

This drink is so easy to make that you can effortlessly whip this up each morning. It requires minimum ingredients and effort.

How to store:

The longer the water is refrigerated before it’s served, the better it will taste!

This orange water is best served the same day but you can also refrigerate the water for up to 5 days.
