We reckon our water is pretty perfect already, but we know that some days you just want a little more something in your glass. Here are our top three recipes to help add some eau la la to your H20…
We love this cinnamon-infused wonder! It’s perfect for warming up winter nights, as well as hydrating you by day. Better still, the cinnamon has a whole host of body-loving benefits.
1. 1-2 cinnamon sticks
2. 1 slice of orange
3. Sparkling spring water
Simmer your cinnamon sticks in a small pan of water for 15 minutes until your water turns a lovely coppery hue. Add a slice of orange to the pan, then leave to cool. When you’re ready, dilute your cinnamony deliciousness with some sparkling spring water (though still water will work too) and enjoy.
The Total Detox Water
Water is the ultimate detoxing drink, perfect for keeping your body feeling tip-top and your mind clear. But how can you turn the detox dial up to 11? Try this easy recipe:
1. 1 sliced lemon
2. 1 sliced lime
3. 1/2 sliced cucumber
4. Handful of mint leaves (12-15, if you’ve time to count them)
5. 500ml still spring water
Add your ingredients to a jug of water and leave to infuse in the fridge overnight. Sip throughout the next morning for a delicious detox and refreshing feelings of smugness!
This is perfect for adults and kids, or anyone who like things a bit fruity. It’s also a great alternative to sugar-packed squashes, which can contain around seven teaspoons of sugar per glass!
1. Handful of raspberries, blueberries – or both!
2. Still spring water
3. Optional mint and ice
Squish up your raspberries or strawberries and pour around 500ml of spring water on them. Add some mint or basil for extra flavour. Leave in the fridge overnight to cool and infuse, and by the morning you’ll have deliciously pink water with a touch of fruity flavour.
To serve, you can keep the fruit in or strain, depending on how much goodness you want, then throw in some ice and fresh mint for a final flourish.
