I generally go for my cider vinegar cocktail, I like tangerine or lime as a switch. I've tried honeydew and cantaloupe waters, too...they were good, but not a favorite.

Oh - strawberries and a grind of black pepper. Cumin and chili powder.

Tried another one, red grapefruit segment and zest, and mandarine orange peel. Really like this one.

There are so many great ideas here for infused water. Thank you all! I'll be referring back to this thread often.

Is it strawberries with the black pepper, cumin, and chili powder or are cumin and chili powder a separate combination?

Thanks for the ideas so far. Several I'm going to have to try. So far I'm finding I like the fruit or fruit and herb ones the best. The black pepper sounds really intriguing. I also have mixed pepper corns and now I'm wondering how they would be with maybe pineapple or tangerine. Hmmm.

Cumin and chili powder are separate. Try the strawberry and black pepper, very interesting twist on strawberry. The mixed peppercorns would be nice.

One of the local grocers regularly has strawberries (locally grown all summer) for a pretty decent price. The ones they have currently are from SoCal and have a really strong strawberry flavor but aren't sweet at all. I'm thinking they would be good with the black pepper.

On one of Jacques Pepin's television shows he did a cheese platter with apples that were sprinkled with lemon juice and crushed or coarsely ground black pepper. He said if you want to impress your guests call it Apples Mignonette, lol!

Pass the Strawberries Mignonette please!

mignonette - A French term used to describe coarsely ground or crushed white or black pepper.
