Fruit & Herb Infused Water Bar

Last week we posted our favorite home brewed summer tea recipes. This week we thought we’d share some fun we had with a fruit and herb infused water bar. It was a hit at a recent gathering!Drink Bar-FillmoreContainer

We equipped each our our guest with the very own Mason Jar Handled Mug and Paper Straw. We gave the option of water or tea in our Beverage Dispensers. Then we used the Elite Ball Pint Widemouth Jars to store our infusions because they were user friendly while allowing the freshness of the contents to show clearly. We cut the mint as close to the start of the event as possible, washed it in very cold water, and refrigerated the jars until our guests arrived to maintain freshness.

Here’s some of our favorite infusions:

The SWEET route – Fruits like sliced strawberries or peaches, pitted cherries, watermelon, honeydew or cantaloupe cubes, raspberries or other edible berries that are in season, slices of other citrus add a sweet freshness. You may want to give whole berries a little pinch before adding to your glass so that you can enjoy the flavor more quickly.

ThymeThe SAVORY route – Sprigs of rosemary, basil, thyme, lovage or even a few burnet leaves add some depth.

Try pairing some thin slices of ginger for a little zing, cucumber for that cool taste or some fennel fronds to add a touch of licorice.

Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to infusing fresh flavors into your water!

What’s your favorite flavor combination?

    Hello there,
    Can you tell me if the spicket on the large jar is made of plastic or metal.
    That determines whether i will purchase.

      It is plastic. Not sure which you were hoping for.:-) It took quite a lot of testing on our part to land on this one. And although we were initially hoping to find one that had metal, we’ve since found out that if you’re doing something like kombucha or anything acidic, this one won’t react and begin to corrode. I hope this helps you in your decision!
