Want to bring life to your water?

Choose to infuse.

  • RINSE your fruits or veggies to clean them.
  • CHOP into thin slices or small cubes.
  • DROP your fruits or veggies into a bottle or pitcher filled with cold water.
  • WAIT an hour or so to let the flavors infuse. The longer it sits, the more flavorful the water will be.
  • DRINK up and refill for more!

Other mouthwatering tips:

  • Drop in flavored ice cubes. Freeze fruit in an ice tray with some water and add the cubes to your water for a flavorful addition.
  • Freeze fruits, or use fresh. Strawberries, lemons, oranges, grapes all will give your water a kick of flavor… and there will be a tasty treat when you’re finished drinking.
  • Add fresh herbs and flavor extracts. Infuse warm water with mint or basil leaves or vanilla extract, then pour over ice for a delicious drink.
  • Ice, Ice baby. Just a change in texture like adding crushed ice can make your water that much more enjoyable.
