Tips on making Hydrating Infused Water

Making infused waters is like making a vegetable stew; you are not going to ruin the stew if you add an extra cup of carrots, for instance. Use your best judgment and err on the side of adding more fruit rather than less. Here are a couple of things to consider before you start experimenting to help you find the flavors that your taste buds crave.  

 

Citrus rinds

Citrus fruits add another layer of flavor, but if you add more than a slice, be sure to remove the rinds! Those produce a bitter flavor and can ruin the taste. These bottles from Amazon are great to filter out the seeds found in citrus fruits as well.  

 

Herb combinations
Before experimenting with herb and fruit combinations, do your research to find out what flavors pair well with each other. When in doubt, you can’t go wrong with adding mint.

 

Sweet fruits
Sweet fruits such as strawberries or pineapple make great additions to your water, especially for kids, encouraging them to drink more water on hot summer days. If you find you’ve added too much, the good news is, you can just add ice to make it less potent!
