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!
