Infused Water {part two}

Last week I told you about how I am trying to drink more water by putting all sorts of things in it. The combinations were quite zesty whereas this week I promised you more fruity combinations, and here they are.

Infused Water - Part Two a | The Pink Rose Bakery

I am not going to waffle on, because there really isn’t much point. All I am going to say is that the pomegranate & blackcurrant one really needs a good while to infuse, so I would make it the day before and let it all fuse and meld in the fridge. It’s because the flavours are quite delicate and therefore need a little more persuading to come out. And it doesn’t do any harm to squish a few of the blackcurrants either (even if they do then look like monsters from Doctor Who floating around in the water).

As it isn’t blackcurrant season yet, I used a few frozen from a bag of frozen berries.

  1. Does cucumber taste sweet in the water? Do you notice it with the orange and mint? I’ve seen other people say to use it, but I’m not generally a fan of it. So I’m wondering why people would want to use it in water? πŸ™‚

  2. I love drinking infused waters, during the Summer I love mint & melon water or sometimes just mint. I’m really enjoying hot water with lemon and fresh ginger during our colder weather. Super post, I’m going to try the pomegranate, blackcurrant & thyme it sounds delicious! Thank you for sharing πŸ˜„

    1. I can’t wait for the weather to warm up a bit so that I can start throwing things like melon and strawberries into water. Apparently pineapple and mango work well too.
      I am also a fan of hot water and lemon – sometimes I put a bit of maple syrup in – it is very refreshing and feels as if it is doing you good! πŸ™‚
