Water with a difference. Try water in all its forms and different tastes.
FLAVOURED WATER IS THE TREND OF THE MOMENT
It is almost sugar-free and a really tasty substitute for unhealthy, sugar-sweet lemonade. Prettily presented in carafes and glasses, they look mouth-wateringly delicious on hot summer days and will naturally entice you to pour a glass or two.
THREE WATER RECIPES FOR REFRESHING PLEASURE
The easiest way of adding flavour to water is to use just one type of fruit or vegetable (e.g. cucumber). In this way, the flavour is transferred to the water unaltered. Those who like a slightly more refined taste should also take a look at herbs and/or spices. Certain combinations create totally new taste experiences.
A GREAT TASTE COMBINATION: WATER WITH HERBS AND CUCUMBER
- Thinly slice ½ a cucumber and put into a jug. - Add 1 litre of water. - Place a washed sprig of rosemary on a cutting board and hit the sprig lightly with a knife handle. This lightly breaks up the structure of the rosemary sprig and releases the flavours. - Put the rosemary in the jug and allow to steep for at least 20 minutes.
- Wash 30 grammes of fresh blueberries and put into a carafe. - LUQEL TIP: In summer, try adding frozen blueberries to water for an additional boost of freshness. - Slice ½ a cucumber. Halve the slices and add to the blueberries. - Add 1 litre of water. - Prepare glasses with ice cubes and a sprig of thyme. - Pour in the water and enjoy.
STRAWBERRY-LIME-MINT WATER: FRESH AND FRUITY
- Simply cut eight to ten ripe strawberries into four and put in a jug with water. - Using a tumbler, squash two or three sprigs of mint on a cutting board, and add. This releases the minty flavour especially well. - Halve a lime or lemon and cut into slices. This gives a contrasting acidic flavour to the sweetness of the strawberries.
The enjoyment of drinking in harmony with your health and the environment. LUQEL water, perfectly mineralised every time. Whether it's pure and refreshing, in your morning coffee, an accompaniment to a wonderful red wine or for even more flavour in Darjeeling tea.
