Want to refresh and hydrate in one sip? Pamper your palate with fruit-infused “spa” water! These inspiring drinks are quick-and-easy to make and look sophisticated at any gathering or event.
I usually have a hard time getting my 64-ounces per day of water, but now that I’ve started making fruit-infused water with their crisp, subtle flavors, I find myself reaching for my “spa” water daily in favor of other beverages.
Fruit-infused water can be made in a number of ways:
- Slice up fresh fruit and add directly to water
- Puree fruit and strain the juice to add to water
- Freeze the slices or strained juice and use in place of ice cubes in water
Infuse the water for at least 2 hours, but for maximum flavor, let it sit in the refrigerator overnight (it keeps in the refrigerator for up to several days).
Don’t limit yourself to just fruit–infused water can also be made with vegetables (like cucumbers or ginger) and herbs (like mint, lavender, or rosemary). The flavors can be as simple as one ingredient, or more complex combinations (try lemon and lavender or watermelon and mint). The possibilities are endless!
What’s your favorite infused water combination?
