Looking for a new and tasty way to get your daily dose of H20? Try infusing your water!
Infused water is simply water with an appropriate fruit, vegetable, or fresh herb added to it. Throw in some fresh fruit or herbs and allow the water to sit in the refrigerator for an hour or so to let the flavor seep out. There’s nothing complicated about it, but it adds a lot to your dining experience – especially if you’re entertaining. This is a cheap way to add impact to a dinner party, appetizer party, summer picnic, or any other get-together.
Try adding any of these individual edibles to water, or try a combination of two or more (such as strawberry-basil or lemon-cucumber):
- Fruits and vegetables – Cucumbers, grapes, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, watermelon, oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruit
- Herbs – Mint, rosemary, basil, parsley, cilantro
Get an Infusion Pitcher
My mom recently bought an infusion pitcher for me, which I absolutely love. I use it not only for water, but also when making sangria, lemonade, and other drinks. It allows you to add extra flavor to your drink, but keeps the flavoring agent contained in a handy removable tube.
