Whilst perusing the Donna Hay website, I came across a lovely image with accompanying directions for flavouring water using green apple and mint leaves, raspberries, or lemongrass and ginger. There is nothing revolutionary about this idea, but I found myself inspired by its pretty simplicity. Peeking expectantly into my seldom-opened freezer bottom drawer, I discovered two as yet unused boxes of frozen organic berries (raspberries and blueberries). Expecting guests for brunch gave me the perfect excuse to use them. I decide to experiment with carbonated water, with pretty and delicately delicious results. Fresh berries, however, would be optimal (as the berries defrosted in the water, the water became a cordial-like colour) and I will be sure to try them next time.
