I am trying my hand at this infused water thing to see if it is something I would like to continue doing. If you don't already know..infused water is simply a different way of getting people to drink more water by making it 'more interesting'.
So you make infused water by adding fruits, herbs, and even vegetables to water. You let the mix sit a for a while so the flavors of your additions can be infused into the water. I have heard that about 4 hours is optimal but many people say they make a batch and let it infuse overnight and still get great results.
Now personally I love drinking plain water so I really see this infused water as a gimmick. In fact all I can think of when I hear infused water..is unsweetened, very watery juice!!!
That is exactly what it is!
Think of the watered down dregs of juice when all the ice has melted and that is what I think of infused water...except without the sugar.
I am trying one lemon infused water and one cucumber infused water today. If I like the results I will combine the lemon and cucumber tomorrow. If THAT goes well then I will look up a few more recipes and try them out.
Again, I am just trying this to see what the hype is all about. I do not need tricks or gimmicks to get me to drink water because I already LOVE it and can easily drink plain water all day long.
Do you drink infused water?
