How To Make Spa Water

Don’t be fooled by the fancy name. Spa water is simply chilled water with natural, sugar-free flavors.

Lemon. Cucumber. Rosemary. Blueberries. Whatever is on hand can work. 

Try one at a time, or double up. One popular mix is citrus and rosemary.

All you need is a glass pitcher (a see-through one, preferably), or a countertop drink dispenser with a spigot.

Allow your add-ins to truly absorb into the water — how long depends on your taste buds. Wait too long and the fruit gets a bit bitter. Move too quickly and you lose taste. Experiment. Some recipes suggest eight hours. Others say a half-hour or less. See what you taste buds say.

Store in the fridge while you’re allowing the flavors to absorb — covered, so your water doesn’t absorb any additional flavors floating around in the fridge. 

Tips:

  • Cucumbers, lemons, oranges, and larger items should be sliced at a minimum. For added flavor, slice each slice in half.
  • Avoid soft fruit like raspberries and strawberries.
  • Mint goes great with any fruit and vegetable add-in.

For recipe ideas, surf the Internet, or experiment with what’s in your garden, grocery or the local farm stand.

Is there an app for that? Of course there is a spa water app.
