TIP OF THE DAY: Homemade Flavored Water

We’ve written before about adding berries, citrus slices, cucumber slices, mint and other herbs to create a pitcher of infused water. It adds considerable flavor with negligent calories.

You can also make flavored water with extracts. McCormick’s, available at most supermarkets, has the widest retail selection:

  • Fruit Flavors: Banana, Lemon, Coconut, Orange, Raspberry and Strawberry
  • Herb Flavors: Anise, Cinnamon, Mint
  • More Flavors: Almond, Maple, Rum
  • We make mint water every day. The recipe: 8-10 drops of mint extract per 16-ounce bottle of water (use a clean medicine dropper).

    We like a very flavor-forward water. If you’re not certain how strong you like it, start with 6 drops and keep adding until you reach your preferred threshold.

    But lately, we’ve been playing with other recipes, including combinations (banana rum is a favorite). But our most favorite discovery: anise water. If you love the flavor of anise (or licorice), try it.

    And let us know your favorite combinations.
