blackberry, basil, infusion, water, flavoried water

Did you know each day you are supposed to drink half of your body weight in ounces of water? Sometimes drinking that much water can be challenging because we forget. It’s water. It’s tasteless. It’s unmemorable.

Adding a little herb and fruit zing is just the ticket to making a H2O delicious and VERY memorable!

Ingredients:

2 liters Water

1 1/2 cups Blackberries

1/2 cup Basil leaves, torn and packed

Directions:

1.) In a small bowl, gently mash blackberries with the bottom of a fork until juice begins to run from each berry.

2.) Combine mashed Blackberries and Basil in the bottom of a pitcher and fill with water.

Buon Appetito!

Remember when Pete taught us how to make some specialty cocktails for Thanksgiving Brunch, and he suggested using the Mason Jar Shaker? Well, the creators of that shaker have now launched The Mason Tap–which is basically a Mason Jar lid with a spout–perfect for making infused oils, spirits and waters! They have also published a new book called Infuse full of delicious recipes for all sorts of…you guessed it!…Infusions!
