Fruit with a twist – our favorite recipes for on the go

Finally, summer is here! A refreshing drink is always welcome. If you prefer flavored beverages instead of just water, our infused drink recipes are perfect for you.

Infused drinks – Have you tried them?

With fruits, herbs, and spices, you can enhance the flavor of your water with minimal effort. Simply add the ingredients with the desired flavors to a water-filled carafe or bottle and wait for the drink to absorb the taste. It’s that simple! It’s best to make a larger batch so you can enjoy it for longer. You can also use tea as a fantastic base, which already brings its own flavor. Feel free to experiment with different combinations.

A classic example of an infused drink is mint lemonade. Just add a few mint leaves and some sliced lemons to water and dissolve a little honey in it. Voila! You have a refreshing and slightly sweet beverage. It tastes even better in the summer when it’s cool. To keep it fresh on the go, use an insulated water bottle like the Esbit MAJORIS insulated water bottle WM1000TL-DG. Its wide opening makes it easy to fill with all the ingredients and enjoy directly.

We love the idea of having a fresh drink on the go. Infused drinks are easy to prepare, refreshing, and offer a variety of flavors! With an etepetete fruit box, you can try many different variations. The Classic Fruit Box contains up to 4,5 to 5 kg of fresh organic fruit, including slightly undersized apples, grapes with minor blemishes or crooked pears. Make the most of the variety in the box and perhaps try a slightly different creation 😊
