Have you tried any of these? Would you? What would you add to the list?
Citrus: Citrus is a great way to add a little tart, tangy, and slightly sweet flavor to your water. You'll also get a little dose of immune-supporting vitamin C and fiber, if you actually eat the sliced fruit. Here's a Spa Water recipe that incorporates several kinds of citrus fruits.
Cucumber: Often served in water in Asian restaurants, cucumber adds a light and fresh taste to water. Those cool cucumber slices could be used afterward to manage eye puffiness. Check out this Refreshing Lemon-Cucumber Water recipe.
Mint: Mint adds a soothing, cool flair to water. Peppermint, in particular, has been used for easing tummy troubles, like bloating. The oils in mint have also exhibited antimicrobial and antifungal properties, too. Infuse this into your water, and you'll definitely feel like you've gotten the spa treatment. Try this Cool Cucumber and Mint Water.
Melon: Watermelon, honeydew, and cantaloupe add the perfect lightly sweet flavor to water. Eat what you don't use, and you'll load up on more water since melons are very high in water content. Try this Cucumber Melon Spa Water.
Berries: Try raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, or blackberries or mix and match your favorites. With a hint of sweetness, berry-infused waters are sure to please the taste buds. Berries pair well with citrus fruits and/or herbs, like mint or basil.
Apples: Apples work in sangria, so why not in water, too? With so many varieties of apples, not only will your water taste good, but it will look amazing, too! Sample this Orange and Green Apple Spa Water.
Rosemary: This aromatic herb will definitely beautify your water and your body with its immune stimulating and anti-inflammatory properties. Give this Herb-infused Spa Water a shot.
Ginger: Added to many Asian dishes, fragrant and spicy ginger will definitely spruce up your water. Ginger is well known for its ability to comfort a distressed gastrointestinal tract. It also exhibits antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Try out this Cucumber-Ginger Water.
