Question ISO: Flavored water recipes

Anyone know or made flavored water before? I love the taste of those flavored waters that have come on the scene in the last few years like "fruit H20". I would sure like to make them at home and as a plus there is no calories, no caffeine, ect. I have been googling around with no luck.

thanks,
ncage

Not to mean any offense, but isn't lemonade flavored water? One of the ways I enjoy water (and I HATE water) is to squeeze some fresh lemon juice into it, then pour it over ice.

I suppose because I don't really care for water, naked, and didn't grow up with flavored drinks, I haven't established a taste for all the new flavored water products.

Well sorry i guess i wasn't more specific. I guess you could consider coke as flavored water in essence :). These are water beverages with just a hint of fruit taste so it taste. A good example would be fruit H20 and gatorade propel. They are not fruit drinks like fruit punch or lemonaide. Its just water with a hint of fruit flavor (its actually clear) if that makes any sense. Its like cherry coke...its really coke with a "hint" of cherry flavor.

I like Kool-Aid, specifically Black Cherry.

On the flavored clear water though, have you tried anything? Experimentation might get it, like maybe try simmering water with your choice of fruit in it. Or just soak the fruit over night in the fridge.

No i was thinking on trying some splenda and i have some peach flavoring concentrate for tea that is sugar free. Maybe it would turn out. I don't know.

ummm...................................anything using water as a sub-straight, that is drinkable, is a flavors water, right?

In that case, I like Bourbon.

And don't eat yellow snow.


As for water, with a hint of flavor, ......................well I haven't "made it" but Budweiser, or any domestic, minus the micro brews

What about just putting a drop or two of flavored oil in your water?
