All That Jazz About Infused Fruit Drinks

Infused drinks are all the buzz these days. But what is the fuss with these colourful slices of fruits in water?

Do you know that some spas hire the expertise of a Spa Water Chef just to create infused drinks for customers? According to the book Water Infusions: Refreshing, Detoxifying and Healthy Recipes for Your Home Infuser by Mariza Snyder and Lauren Clum, the primary job scope of a Spa Water Chef is “to create unique water recipes that restore, replenish, and aid relaxation.”

If you visit FoodNetwork.com, there’s even a recipe called “Spa Water” which basically and technically, comprises one orange, lemon and lime slices, and half a pink or white grapefruit, with a cup of mint leaves to be mixed into a clear pitcher and filled with ice water. This recipe was concocted by a professional chef named Chef Scott Leibfried.

Proper hydration equates to good health. And water is the source of life, isn’t it? So we should all drink up and replenish ourselves with good ol’ plain water. But why are people taking sliced citrus fruits thrown in a jug of iced water or infused drinks, and perhaps even substituting water with these drinks?
 

Here are a few reasons we can think of:
 

It makes drinking water more enjoyable!

Some say those who prefer subtle flavours over boring plain water will find infused drinks more appealing and fulfilling for their taste buds.
 

Helps us reduce our frizzy drink intake

Infused drinks can curb our craving for sweet drinks as the hint of flavour makes it easier to break the soda habit. This is good news for those who want to cut down on fizzy and sugary drinks. Sounds like a good psychological hack to help us make the switch to a healthier lifestyle!
 

They are really pretty

Don’t deny it. The burst of colours is pretty! The gradient from different tones of orange and yellow with peppers of green from the peppermint peeking out amongst the slices of citrus makes drinking an aesthetically-pleasing experience.
 

They are extremely healthy

You can even concoct your own infused drink with any kinds of fruits or herbs and even flowers! But do your research well, of course. When you add fruits and herbs, you are introducing essential vitamins to your diet. Some nutritionists say that 20% of the vitamin content and naturally-occurring antioxidant will be infused into your water. It is like vitamin water.
