Why choose infused carbonated water?

Making infused carbonated water at home has many advantages.

Choosing the right ingredients

Starting with a good selection of ingredients is essential for a successful infusion:

  • Fresh or frozen fruit, aromatic herbs, whole spices;
  • Citrus fruit such as lemon, lime, orange, and grapefruit;
  • Berries such as strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries;
  • Fine herbs such as mint, basil, and rosemary;
  • Spices such as cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom.

The infusion process

Infusing is easy!

  • Begin by cutting fruit into slices or pieces and lightly crushing the herbs to release their oils.
  • Place them in a pressure-resistant jug or pitcher.
  • Add cold sparkling water and allow to stand for at least one hour. For more intense flavour, you can allow the mixture to rest in the fridge for a few hours or even overnight.

Storing and serving

Your infused sparkling water will keep in the fridge for 2 to 3 days.

You can also serve it over ice for an even more refreshing drink!

Make sure to gently stir the mixture before serving to evenly distribute the flavours.

Making your own infused sparkling water is a great way to stay hydrated and enjoy a drink that is both tasty and healthy. With a bit of creativity, you can transform your daily water consumption ritual into a unique and enjoyable experience!
