Infused Water Ideas

by: Megan Wroe; Health Advisor at Bottley


INSTRUCTIONS

  1. First, simply add the fruit//vegetables in the glass first, take a muddler to slightly mash, and break down the fruit/vegetables.

  2. Tip: peel the citrus fruits from their skin to avoid a bitter taste.

  3. Next, simply take the herb/spice of choice and gently bruise the leaf, this helps release the natural extracts and oils from the herb//spice.

  4. Lastly, add either sparkling water or good ole’ filtered water and drink!

**These can be stored in airtight glasses as shown above, simply in a mason jar, glass pitcher, water bottle, gallon jug, etc. Whatever works for you. Best kept in the refrigerator for up to a week or until the flavor is no longer present and you may add more “infusions” here.
