Organising Chaos

trying to bring beauty and order into a busy life



It looks like the good weather has finally arrived to Ireland! I am nervous about getting excited about the heat as we don’t know if it is here to stay but we are totally embracing the summer with open arms.

Organising Chaos - Easy Flavoured Water

With the heat comes more thirst. Although I am happy to use carbonated drinks as mixers in my cocktails, I have never been able to drinks them on their own, I just never enjoyed the fizz sensation in my mouth.  I have always been a water person. It is actually the only thing that will get rid of thirst for me. But water can get a bit boring and to drink the infamous 2.5 lts of water a day can be a challenge, so I decided to  gather all the empty bottles at home to infuse some water with different flavors for different moods or times of the day in order to encourage me to drink more water.


Organising Chaos - Raspberry infused water
Frozen berries are ideal for this. This is one the quickest infusions to do as the second you add the water to the raspberries you will see the color changing and the sweetness infusing the water (you won’t see that though). The kids have even requested it for their school lunches!


Organising Chaos - lemon infused water
Lemon water is so fresh and probably the best way of crunching your thirst in those hot days or after exercise. It is also great for detoxing and generally good for the system. It is energizing and great to drink during the morning.


Organising Chaos - mint and blueberry infused water
If you don’t have a mint plant, I will strongly advise you to get one. There is minimum maintenance and it is a plant that keeps on giving. We use mint  a lot for tea, cocktails, food… and it will bring your plain water to a different dimension. I combined it with some frozen blueberries to get the mixture of sweetness and freshness, ideal to have between meals.


Organising Chaos - Orange and clove infused water
Orange and cloves are a great combination with hot or cold water. The orange peel gives the water a subtle citrus flavor without been too strong while the cloves gives it a hint of spice that will make your feel comfy and warm in those summer evenings.

So go on, there is no reason not to drink water any more. Give it a go!
