 Tips for  getting your family with a spa water

How to make a infused water  you  and your family   any   number of  herds ,spices, fruit  and even vegetables and  even  edible  flowers

  • Herbs: Rosemary, thyme, mint, basil, cilantro, parsley
  • Spices: Cinnamon sticks, cardamom pods, fresh ginger, cloves, vanilla bean
  • Edible flowers: Rose, lavender, citrus blossoms, hibiscus, pansies, violets (or any that are 100% pesticide free)
  • Fruit: Berries (fresh or frozen), melon, tropical fruits, citrus, apples, pears
  • Vegetables: Cucumber, celery, fennel, carrots
  •  Water: Filtered water is great, but if you don’t have a filtration system, tap water is fine too

Be patient

Let the water sit for a few hours to allow the flavors to infuse.

  • The longer it sits, the more flavorful the water will be.
  • Some fruits or herbs will infuse more quickly than others.
  • Citrus is pretty instant. Herbs take a little longer.
  • Berries take a few hours and will also release color into the water.
  •   However, you should keep it in the fridge or put ice in it if you aren’t planning on using it right away.

Drink + refill

Pour a glass and enjoy! You can refill the water a few times and let it infuse again, but the flavors won’t be as pronounced.

Naturally Flavored Water

  • fruit — whatever kind you like (except no bananas); make sure it’s good and ripe for maximum sweetness and flavor.  I like to use all kinds of citrus and berries. I also found pineapple and watermelon to work well for flavoring water. If you don’t want to buy whole ones, many grocery stores sell small containers of pre-cut fruit.
  • herbs — these are optional, but many herbs are a surprising complement to fruit flavors; almost any herb will work depending on your personal preference
  • jars or pitchers — I use 2 quart mason jars primarily, but any 2 quart pitcher will do.
    fruit infusion pitcher–I recently purchased one of these–it’s another option if you think you’ll be making infused waters regularly; a very easy, tidy way to strain fruit from water.
    fruit infusion water bottle–I love using this for a portable, on-the-go option.
  • muddler or wooden spoon for mashing fruit and herbs
  • water — I use filtered water, but regular tap water is fine if yours tastes good to you
