Fruit-Infused Water Recipes with Soma

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign withPollinate Media Group™ andSoma, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #givesoma http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO.

With the holidays quickly approaching, I am already thinking about upcoming Christmas parties and get-togethers, the food and drinks that I want to serve, and how I want my table top to look. I’m not a big soda fan, so I plan on serving fruit infused water in different flavors to guests this season. The colors are so pretty, it’s a healthy alternative to sugary soda and juice, it’s easy and quick to make, and tastes great!


One secret to making fruit-infused water is to start with clean, great-tasting water, which my tap water is not. I live in Southern California, where the tap water tastes absolutely horrible. I stock up on bottled water weekly so that we have enough water in the house, but I always thought that there had to be a better way. I’ve tried traditional water filters in the past, but after constantly finding little black specks in my water and having the top fall off of the pitcher at the dinner table when pouring, I was done!


So you can imagine how thrilled I was when I learned about the new Soma. Just one look and it was love at first sight! I love the modern, clean lines of the Soma, and I wouldn’t be embarrassed to have it sitting out during a dinner party- I want to show it off!  


Soma features a hand crafted glass carafe and a 100% biodegradable filter that is made from Malaysian coconut shell carbon, fine silk, and a plant-based filter casing. My tap water truly tastes great after it is filtered in my Soma. One of the best things about this company is that every filter that you buy brings safe, clean drinking water to those in need through their partners at charity: water. You can watch a video here to learn more.

Here are a few delicious recipes for fruit-infused water that you can create using your water from your Soma. I love that there are so many different flavor combinations, and the possibilities are truly endless! Try creating your own unique combinations with your favorite fruit (and herbs, too, if you’d like). All of these recipes are for a glass, so if you’re making more for a party, just use more ingredients! Fruit infused water is best after letting the flavors meld together a few hours, or even overnight.

 

Pomegranate Lime Fruit Infused Water:


1. Add a few teaspoons of pomegranate seeds to the bottom of your glass.  Place a couple thin slices of lime that have been cut in half into the glass.

 

2. Muddle the pomegranate seeds by using a muddler or wooden spoon to slightly crush the fruit to release the flavors. Be careful not to overdo it.


3. Fill the glass full of ice.


4. Add fresh water from your Soma to the glass, and place in the fridge for a few hours (or overnight).

You’ll be surprised at how much more water you drink when it tastes this good! I know I found myself drinking a lot more water, which is great for my body and health.

 

Orange Berry Fruit Infused Water:



1. Add a few sliced strawberries and quartered thin orange slices to the bottom of your glass.  

2. Muddle the strawberries and orange slices by using a muddler or wooden spoon to slightly crush the fruit to release the flavors. Be careful not to overdo it.

3. Fill the ice full of glass, add fresh water, wait for a few hours, and enjoy!

This flavor was my favorite because I have a sweet-tooth, and this water was nice and sweet and full of flavor.

 

Cucumber Melon Fruit Infused Water:



1. Place some cubed honeydew chunks and halved thin cucumber slices in the bottom of your glass.  

2. Muddle the honeydew and cucumber slices by using a muddler or wooden spoon to slightly crush the fruit to release the flavors. Be careful not to overdo it.

3. Fill the ice full of glass, add fresh water, wait for a few hours, and enjoy!

If you love Soma as much as I do, you can order a Soma carafe + filter for only $49, and you will automatically be enrolled in their fresh filter program, which sends you replacement filters to your home every two months. The cost is $12.99, which is less than 25 cents per day, and shipping is always free. No more guessing when it’s time to change the filter!

A new Soma would make a great gift for family, friends, clients- anyone! To give the Soma carafe and filter costs $49, or you can give a Soma carafe + a 12-month filter subscription for only $99. Be sure to follow along with Soma on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest to keep up with this great company!
