Infused Spa Waters

Restaurants & spas do it, why not you? Placing fresh herbs and/or fruit in a gallon of water and leaving it in the refrigerator overnight is a great way to add flavor and reduce the boredom of drinking plain water.  In fact, the “Classic Spa Water” is simply chilled spring water with a few sprigs of mint, rosemary and cucumber.

Looking for some soda fizz? Low sodium mineral water, such as San Pellegrino, works perfectly!

Need a little extra sweetness? No artificial sugars should be used. Use a little bit of honey to taste!

There are many flavor combinations that you can play with using the fresh, simple ingredients, such as:

  • HERBS – a few sprigs of fresh mint, rosemary or sage
  • FRUITS –  pears, apples, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, peaches, watermelon, honeydew
  • PEELS – lemon or lime peel has a fraction of the acid that the juice would have.
  • SPICES – cinnamon, cloves, vanilla beans & ginger root
