Infused Water Recipes
You’ve probably heard of Infused Water, haven’t you? Ultimately, the water is flavorful. Water is flavored with fruit and fruits, making it even tastier and healthier. I will show you how you can easily make this fruit water yourself using my recipes and how easy it is to try out your own aroma water creations.
Infused Water in German
Infused Water comes from English and translates to German as much as drawn water . Solid in this case refers to the fruit and the fruit, which is used to spice up the water. A healthy and affordable way to quench your thirst.
Spice Up Water with Fruits and Fruit
Now you are probably wondering how you can spice up your water with fruit and which combinations taste good? Ultimately, you can try out all sorts of things and flavor your water. It doesn’t matter whether you use fresh or frozen fruit. With frozen fruits you also have the advantage that it cools. However, you can also simply put your carafe in the fridge or use ice cubes.
Fruit Water – This is How You Can Flavor Water
The longer you let the fruits soak in the water, the more taste they give off and the more intense your fruit water becomes. You can also influence the intensity of the taste with the amount of fruit used. If you have a pestle, you can use it to squeeze more juice out of the fruit.
Whether you want to flavor sparkling water or still water is entirely up to you. I personally prefer still water. You can find the following recipes for flavored water at the end of the article:
- Cucumber water
- Cucumber and lemon water
- Ginger water with lime, lemon and mint
- Ginger and lemon water with mint and cucumber
- Lemon water
- Lemon-mint water
- Apple water with melon

Make water with taste yourself
Especially at the beginning you are probably a little unsure about the amounts to use and look for suggestions to make your own water with taste. If you don’t like one ingredient in my infused water recipes, just exchange it for another one or leave it out altogether.
I personally do not use sugar in my aroma water. If you like it sweet, you can of course add some, but in my eyes this is not necessary because the fruits bring enough sweetness. Honey would be a healthier alternative if you want to add something sweet.
Tip: You can add water to your fruits a second time and you don’t have to use new ones every time.
I personally use a carafe with insert for my fruit water so that the contents do not tip into the glass when pouring. However, a few fruits in the glass also look very pretty.
Aroma water recipes
Here are my aroma water recipes. Dare to change the recipes a little or create your own fruit water. You can’t go wrong.
The following applies to all of my infused water recipes, but is not specifically mentioned in the preparation:
- Use 1.5 liters of water.
- Buy organic fruits and vegetables if you don’t want to remove the peel.
- Wash the fruit used beforehand.
- Large ingredients are sliced, small ingredients such as berries can be easily added.
Preparation of the flavored water
Ultimately, the preparation is always the same, which is why I do not list it with every single aroma water.
Wash your fruits and, depending on their size, slice them or put them in your container. Now fill the carafe with water and then place it in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, but better overnight and let it steep.
