HERBAL INFUSED WATERS

Elegant and refreshing… there is nothing boring about herbal infused waters.
These satisfying, easy to make waters are and light and oh, so interesting…

Herbal Waters have a hint of  flavor that lingers as you drink it down.  Dazzling! 
A welcomed alternative to regular water and much more economical than those expensive flavored water. Perfect for hydrating with style during the upcoming warm months or after exercising!
Make a statement by filling pretty bottles with your favorite Herbal Infused Waters… so chic!
STONEGABLE APPLEMINT HERBAL WATER
good fresh water
fresh applemint, rinsed
Fill a pretty bottle with good quality water and add sprigs of applemint. Depending on how intense you want the flavor, slightly bruise some of the leaves, releasing the applemint oils into the water. Refrigerate for a couple of hours. Serve with plenty of ice and a nice sprig of mint.
Show restraint… herbal waters should be very lightly flavored, so you only need a small amount of herbs. They should gently infuse the water.

Some recipes call for steeping herbs in boiling water. This can changes the flavor of the herbs, loosing their just picked, fresh taste. I would not recommend this for herbal waters.

Be creative with herbs and tasty add-ins!

    I love cucumber and lemon slices in water and have been drinking it for a while. I just started adding mint, it is wonderful. I need to look for apple mint here. I don’t think I have ever seen it. I love the individual bottles. xo

    I love making herbal (or berry) infused waters, especially in the summer. Lemon is a favourite, as is mint, and lemon balm. Now if only the weather would warm up around here!

    Thanks for your sweet comment. I love the presentation of your water. I once made mint lime water and our dinner guests couldn’t believe it was just mint and lime. I hope my mint spreads so I can make this soon.

    I love trying new recipes of herbal water, using herbs I have in my garden mostly, so I know there’s no chemical of any kind on them… But here we’re having a chilly spring, so I’ll stick to hot herbal tea for a little while! Thanks for the ideas of combinations, though, I’ll try some of them as soon as normal spring temperatures are back!

    I always enjoy the cucumber water they serve at various spas I’ve been to, so your applemint would be right up my alley, Yvonne. I’ve never thought to make some for home!

    I have a few antique bottles with the same type of stoppers that my sister found in the attic of my parents home. I need to get them down & use them in a tablescape somehow!

    Hugs to you my friend, for all your wonderful ideas,
    Rett
