Fruit-infused water is a good alternative to sugary and chemical-filled soft drinks. They’re refreshing, attractive and the touch of natural sweetness may help curb sugar cravings. Check out the suggestions below for inspiration or create your own concoction with your favorite fruits and herbs. You can make any of these drinks with sparkling water to make them bubbly like a soda. You’ll need to serve them right away so they won’t lose their fizz, rather than letting them infuse in the refrigerator.
