We have all heard time and again that we need to drink more water. But what if you just don’t like the taste of water, or find it well, a little boring to drink? The answer: get yourself a water infuser bottle.
A water infuser or fruit infuser bottle can help encourage you to drink more water by making it less boring and a little more palatable simply by adding your favorite, all-natural flavors. These bottles allow you to fill a basket-like contraption or rod with cut-up fruit, vegetables, herbs or any other flavor combination you can think of to infuse it with your water, making for a delicious, thirst-quenching experience.
Our suggestions: try cucumber or lemon water, like they serve at fancy hotels and spas, or add fresh berries and stone fruit for a naturally sweet, healthy and hydrating “treat.”
We have found a few of the best water bottles and pitcher-style infusers that are inexpensive, attractive and easy to travel with. These bottles work great for the office, gym, hiking, camping and even for kids at school, to ensure that everyone gets the healthy hydration needed every single day.
