Infused Water Recipes |

Water has never been so party-worthy. Keep guests hydrated and sipping pretty at summer events with invigorating infused water. It tastes refreshingly delicious, looks absolutely gorgeous in our carafes, and pours perfectly into cups. Have some fun with different fruit, vegetable, and herb combinations for various flavors. Just add sliced fruit and herbs to a carafe, fill with water, refrigerate, and let the flavors meld. Here are three infused water recipes we created for you to enjoy!

You can start drinking the water right away, but the flavors will become stronger the longer you allow the ingredients to intermingle. The infused water will stay good for about 3 days in the refrigerator.

To recreate this look, serve infused water in mini carafes (7.5 oz) or large carafes (35 oz) and pair with straws and charger plates. Shop featured items here!

  • Hello folks at Smarty had a Party! I’m a content contributor for Ehsaas Magazine and wondering if I could include a recipe from this post (with the picture) in an article roundup of infused water recipes that I’m working on? I would credit you for both the picture and the recipe, and the recipe would NOT be reprinted in full. Let me know what you think!

    (I would have emailed this request, but unfortunately I could not locate the contact information on this site.)
