Herb Infusion Drinks
Stay hydrated the healthy way, without the alcohol!
Herb infusion drinks are some of our Silver & Gold reader favourites, and here we share the easiest and best combinations.
Herbs have a long list of benefits, and can be also used in drinks.
Do you have others you have tried, or favourites you don't see listed here? Let us know, we'd love to add them to our herb drink lineup!
Infused waters are an easy way to add flavour to your plain water, while adding nutrients from plant substances. Once prepared, the infused water can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. It’s also a fun way to try different flavour combinations using fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
In a large pitcher, add 1 Cup of desired fruit or vegetable to 3 Tablespoons of fresh herbs. Fill with fresh water and allow flavours to combine in room temperature for 1 hour, then move to the refrigerator for cooling.
Before serving, you may add 1 Tablespoon of honey to sweeten slightly, although it’s best to get your palate accustomed to drinking infused waters without any sweeteners, as sweeteners can also dehydrate. Try the following:
• Cucumber + Strawberry + Thyme
• Cucumber + Lemon + Mint + Rosemary (our favourite!)
• Strawberry + Lemon + Basil
• Cantaloupe + Honey + Mint
• Blueberry + Pomegranate + Mint
• Blackberry + Lime + Cilantro + Mint
• Blackberry + Sage
• Strawberry + Lemon + Ginger
• Mango + Basil
• Watermelon + Mint
