Ways to Jazz up the Flavor of Water

We at Chanson Water love the taste of alkaline pH 9.5 water produced by our water ionizers. However, we recognize that drinking nothing but water day in and day out can become a bit tedious at times, and studies show that you’re likely to drink more water if it’s flavored and that it’s important to drink at least half your body weight in ounces daily to avoid dehydration. So instead of reaching for acidic drinks like coffee, soda, black tea, processed “fruit” juice, sports and energy drinks or alcohol, we offer the following (mostly alkaline) suggestions as additives to your ionized water:

  • Crushed fresh mint leaf
  • Lemon wedges
  • Lime wedges
  • Cucumber slices
  • Splash of coconut water
  • Slice of ginger
  • Green tea (can sweeten with Stevia)
  • Cinnamon essential oil
  • Grapefruit juice or sweet grapefruit essential oil 
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Fresh lemongrass
  • Lavender
  • Rose petals
  • Coconut water ice cubes
  • Flavored Stevia drops (we like the Sweet Leaf brand)
  • True Lemon, True Lime, True Grapefruit and/or True Orange crystallized substitue
The following are not alkaline additives but should be fine for an occasional treat:
  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Kiwi slices
  • Orange slices
  • Raspberries
  • Fresh pineapple chunks
And here are some combinations to try:
  • Ginger, grapefruit
  • Cucumber, strawberries, lavender, lemon
  • Lime juice, lemon juice, raspberries, mint leaves
  • Rose petals, fresh lemon thyme, lemon juice
  • Fresh lemongrass, fresh Thai basil
  • Lemon, ginger, cinnamon
  • Lime, cucumber, fresh thyme leaves
  • Strawberry, kiwi
  • Lavender mint
