Quench Your Thirst: Infused Water Recipes
Looking for refreshing ways to stay hydrated and quench your thirst? You can always drink some good old-fashioned water. But who wants plain H20 when you can jazz it up? And not solely with lemon or cucumber, mind you. Those ingredients are so last year.
With infused water, you can combine a host of fresh herbs, spices, fruits, vegetables and even edible flowers to design the perfect, refreshing drink to suit your liking. Rosemary, mint, basil, thyme, sage, cilantro, cinnamon, lemongrass, ginger and even lavender – practically nothing is off the table. Simple and easy to make, there are countless infused water recipes and fruit/herb combinations to choose from. Combine the ingredients (slice and deseed fruits and crush leafy herbs to release their oils) along with room temperature or cold filtered water, let them sit in large containers or jar for two hours (minimum), and voila! So, try some of these refreshing, tasty drinks on for size. We promise you’ll love each and every one of them.
