When you’re on the hunt for hydration, sometimes plain old water doesn’t cut it. Try swapping your tired H20 with infused water for a boost of flavor and some added flair. Sprouts’ vast selection of fruit and herbs is a playground for infused water combinations. If you’re planning July 4th festivities, try Berry & Mint Infused Water. All you need is a few simple ingredients. The colors are perfect for Fourth of July celebrations and the flavor will keep you motivated to sip all summer and maintain that eight-glass-a-day routine.
Simply combine one gallon of water with one cup of blackberries and strawberries and eight fresh mint sprigs. Stir everything together, then let the water chill in the fridge for at least one hour before drinking. (It’s best to drink within two days.) Still water can be substituted for sparkling water if you prefer.
