A lot of us forget to drink enough water throughout the day, even though staying hydrated keeps your skin looking healthy, keeps headaches at bay, and can curb your hunger cravings. We hope these simple flavoured water recipes will get you excited about drinking water again!

What You Need

  • Mason Jar (with a lid)
  • Water (as much as you can fill into your jar)
  • Can also substitute in sparkling water for a variation
  • Agave Syrup (option if you prefer to sweeten your drink)
  • Ice for serving

Flavoured Water Combinations

1. Blackberry/Sage

Blackberry and Sage Flavoured Water

For an unexpected combination, try pairing blackberries and sage. Sage is great because it's a hardy herb so it won’t wilt in your water.

  1. Crush your sage at the bottom of a pitcher bowl to release flavours.
  2. Add washed blackberries.
  3. Top off with water.
  4. Put in fridge for at least three hours to release flavours.
  5. Add ice when ready to serve.
2. Ginger/Mint

Ginger and Mint Flavoured Water

This is a really refreshing combo. Ginger is great for digestion while mint is calming. It’s the perfect post-workout drink because it’s very energizing.

  1. Peel and cut up a small amount of ginger.
  2. Add mint.
  3. Add water.
  4. The longer your ingredients steep, the stronger the flavour will be, so check periodically. We recommend you check the taste after an hour.
  5. Add ice when ready to serve.
  6. Stir and enjoy!
3. Blood Orange/Vanilla Bean

Blood Orange and Vanilla Bean Flavoured Water

For a sweet treat, pair blood oranges with a vanilla bean. Oranges are packed with Vitamin C and vanilla is a luxurious flavour that can’t be beat.

  1. Cut open a full vanilla bean to release flavours.
  2. Squeeze your blood orange to get all the juice out.
  3. Add water.
  4. Let sit for at least two hours in the fridge to develop flavour.
