The best part of making Infused waters is creating a combination of fruits that will suit your taste. My absolute favorite is Cucumber - Strawberry. Sweet but with the freshness of the cucumber. I think it's the perfect summer water to have on hand - and it's pretty too!
Here's my super simple recipe!
You will need: 1 pitcher of cold water, half of a peeled cucumber - sliced and 6 sliced strawberries
Push the fruit down into the water and let set for just a few minutes. Of course the longer you let the fruit and water blend together the stronger the flavors will be. If you're planning on making this for guests, make it right before you'd like to serve it. I've found that the strawberries tend to use their vibrancy when I leave them in the water for too long (3+ hours) and they don't look as pretty as when I first slice them! I like fruit to look fresh!
Since infused water has been around forever I'm sure you all might have some combinations that I haven't yet thought about! So, if you feel like sharing with us, what is your best and most favorite Spa water?
Happy weekend everyone and thanks for having me! ~ Tara
