Infused water has taken the hydration world by storm. It's a refreshing, flavourful, and healthy alternative to sugary beverages. But what makes infused water even more delightful is its versatility. With the vast array of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices available, there's no limit to the combinations you can craft.
So, if you're just starting your infused water journey with your T-bottle or looking for some new mix-ins to experiment with, here are five of the most loved infused water recipes to inspire your next concoction:
