Keep it Cool, Man

I never really liked herbs, until this year.  All of a sudden, I can't get enough Basil.  And mint? Forget about it. I want to eat it on everything. Now if only I would start liking tomatoes… We have a shady past.

Anyway, I thought I would put my new found love for herbs to work and make some "infused water" or "Spa Water" or for us who are less trendy (me) "flavored water".  I stored the water overnight so the fruit/herb taste would be stronger.

My favorite was probably Strawberry Basil, because it's just a weirdly good combo.  Strawberries and Basil were meant to be infused.  True love, if you will?   For everyday flavored water, for sure the blackberry chocolate mint.  Have you heard of chocolate mint before? Seriously, so good! I got mine at a local nursery, and sometimes I just go to the back porch and inhale it's heavenly scent.  The watermelon mint was also super tasty.

I can't wait to try some more combos and see how tasty they are! Orange Mint? What about Plum Chocolate Mint? Cheers to hydration!


  1. Did you refrigerate them during the infusing time?

    And how funny........my dad gave me a homegrown chocolate mint plant TONIGHT as a surprise! HA! He has a huge patch of it in his garden!

    1. Yes mam!! The mason jars work great because they seal nice and tight! Your dad is so sweet! Doesn't it smell like heaven?!
