Retap Twist Water Infusion

We all know hydration is critical for our bodies and brains to function and stay healthy—the challenge is creating a healthy habit of drinking enough water every day. Using a Retap bottle can help create a routine that supports healthy water intake. Designed to be easy to hold and drink from, our eco-friendly bottle is made from borosilicate glass so it resists breaking. Fill it with water, put on the leak proof lid and go.

But what about those times when you just want something different? Infused water is a tasty choice to help you reach your hydration goals. Over the course of a few months we sliced, mixed, and twisted away to find out how to get the most out of water infusion in a Retap Bottle. We call these infusions Retap Twists. The recipe below for Citrus Twist with a hint of mint is one of our favorites.

Citrus Twist with a hint of mint

Citrus fruit is very suitable for making Retap Twists. It gives great flavor, has lots of Vitamin C, and there are many varieties. If you are looking for a refreshing tartness use lemon or lime, if you prefer a sweeter taste try orange. Want to try extra tangy? Add some thinly sliced grapefruit and pucker up!

Drop in a sprig of mint for some extra cool, fresh, sweet flavor and you are ready to go.

2 slices of lime
1 slice of lemon
2 slices of orange
1 thin slice of grapefruit
1 sprig of fresh mint

1. Take a sprig of mint and put it completely in your Retap bottle
2. Slice the fruit and add it to the bottle in mixed order
3. Fill the bottle with water
4. Put the lid on and gently shake

Apples come in many different varieties ranging from very sweet to very sour. For this Retap Twist, we like a sweet apple to pair with the cinnamon. You can add a splash of lemon juice when you are in the mood for a little zing.

Berry Maple Syrup Twist 

Retap - Berry Maple Syrup Twist
We love to use berries in our water infusions. Raspberry is our favourite, because it has such a distinct taste and it easily infuses in water. We also like blueberries, though they need a longer time to infuse. The Berry Maple Syrup Twist is a sweet treat and you can eat the berries at the end of the day! We used maple syrup, because of it’s special flavour, but any syrup will work as a sweetener. 
4 raspberries
6 blueberries
a dash of maple syrup

3. Put all the berries in a Retap
