 Directions

First, simply add the fruit//vegetables in the glass first, take a muddler (or just use a wooden spoon or regular spoon) to slightly mash and breakdown the fruit//vegetables.
Tip: peel the citrus fruits from their skin to avoid a bitter taste.
Next, simply take the herb//spice of choice and gently bruise the leaf (i.e. gently mashing), this helps release the natural extracts and oils from the herb//spice.
Lastly, add either sparkling water or good ole”™ filtered water and drink!
__________________________________________________________________________________
STORAGE | these can be stored in airtight glasses as shown above, simply in a mason jar, glass pitcher, water bottle, gallon jug, etc. Whatever works for you. Best kept in the refrigerator for up to a week or until the flavor is no longer present and you may add more “infusions” here.

NUTRITION | Since you”™re not consuming the questionable ingredients above in most commercially bought vitamin waters, you”™re receiving natural occurring vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Note, this is an INFUSION, not a juice. Therefore, with these Simply Infused Waters the amount of sugar and calories is negligible; it”™s called an infusion for a reason. You”™re simply infusing the water with flavors and all natural nutrients from the fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
