After what feels like the longest winter ever, summer is finally right around the corner...and that means it's time to start thinking about summer refreshments! If you're planning a summer wedding or wedding shower, waters infused with fruit, vegetables, and herbs are a simple and elegant addition to your menu. (And an easy way to keep the non-alcoholic beverages flowing at an outdoor event!) When it comes to flavor combinations, there are endless possibilities; get started with three of our favorite flavored water recipes.

A few more tips for making fabulous flavored water:
- Be sure to wash your fruit and herbs well before using!
- For most flavored water recipes, we suggest using a wooden spoon to gently crush some of the fruit and/or herbs to release the flavors.
- We recommend chilling for about four hours before serving; the flavored water will stay good in the fridge for up to three days.
- Experiment with sparkling water, different quantities of fruit and herbs, and different flavor combinations!
