I’m making the spa water for mom’s birthday dinner tonight now that the chocolate dipped strawberries are done and the homemade Italian food needs to be started. A few days ago, we got a book called Spa Water – A Guide to Creating World Class Spa Water at Home that details the recipes found in some of the best spas and resorts on Earth. We also got a really cool Prodyne infusion pitcher to complement that large serving urns that are ordinarily used for family dinners.
I’m crazy about the stuff. If you have never made your own, I highly recommend trying it the next time you have a family dinner. There are some really interesting recipes out there, especially for summer (some call for melons and passion fruit, others from cucumbers and ginger, some are basic and involve infusing various citrus fruits for a splash for flavor). It is especially good served in a chilled glass with a sprig of mint or lemon if you are outside on a hot summer day.
If you don’t make spa water, I highly recommend it. I like to have a new flavor made every morning to enjoy throughout the day. If you don’t want to go to the trouble of large serving urns, just use the infusion pitchers. They are inexpensive, easy to clean, and make the process nearly effortless.
