1. Pineapple, Mint, and Ginger
Interested in a pineapple, mint, and ginger infused water?
To get started, grab a pitcher, a mason jar, a paring knife, a muddler or wooden spoon, pineapple, mint, ginger, and ice.
Cut up half of the pineapple into thin slices, grab about 6 sprigs of mint, and peel and slice the ginger using the paring knife.
Use the muddler or wooden spoon to lightly crush the mint at the bottom of the pitcher. Add the ginger and gently smash it using a circular motion. Finally, add the slices of pineapple.
Next, add 2 quarts of water. Let this sit in your refrigerator for a few hours for best results.
Now you should strain all of the solids out. Don’t worry, we’ll have fruit in the drink via garnish.
Add a slice of pineapple, a sprig of mint, and a slice or two of ginger to a mason jar, fill it with ice and then top it off with your deliciously infused water! Voila!
2. Apple, Cinnamon
Thinking fall? Think apple and cinnamon flavored water; delightful!
To get started, grab a pitcher, a mason jar, a paring knife, apple, cinnamon sticks, and ice. Cut up 2 apples into thin slices and add that and 4 cinnamon sticks into your pitcher with about 2 quarts of water.
Let the solution sit for at least two hours and then strain and serve with ice and a garnish of a slice of apple and a cinnamon stick.
3. Grapefruit Water Flavoring, Mint
We love fresh fruit, but sometimes you just want something easier. With True grapefruit packets, you’ll get the taste and benefits of grapefruit without all of the messy and time-consuming cutting and instilling.
We love grapefruit on its own, but adding mint really elevates the flavor profile. If you’re interested in adding mint, add a few sprigs to a mason jar and muddle them up. Make your cup with the grapefruit water flavoring and then pour it over ice and the mint. Delicioso!
4. Raspberry, Lime
A classic: berry and citrus!
To get started, grab a pitcher, a mason jar, a paring knife, a muddler or wooden spoon, raspberries, limes, and ice.
First, you should quarter a couple limes and then squeeze the juice into the pitcher. Add the squeezed limes and a handful of raspberries and use the muddler to release some of the juices.
Add 2 quarts of water into the pitcher and let sit in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, but up to two days. Now you should strain all of the solids out, but use a slice of lime and some fresh raspberries for garnish.
5. Watermelon, Rosemary
We love the natural flavors of watermelon and rosemary together.
Let’s get started! Use a pitcher, a mason jar, a knife, a muddler or wooden spoon, watermelon, rosemary, and ice.
Cut up 3 slices of watermelon and muddle it in the bottom of the pitcher. Add rosemary and gentle press, as the scent and flavors will release easily.
Add 2 quarts of water and allow the watermelon and rosemary to infuse before straining and serving over ice and with a watermelon rosemary garnish!
