Hola guys! Welcome to the first installment of my Taste Test Adventures! Woo Hoo!! So basically this series serves to showcase the different wacky food “experiments” that I’ve tried and tested, whether good or bad I share them with you! If it’s good, then you should try it too! If it’s bad, don’t ever try it cos I just know it’s gonna be a bad idea. XD
Thus, lemme me be your “guinea pig” as I help you find out what’s worth a shot and what’s not! Here we go!
What I’m trying out today is…….. Grape-Infused Water! So basically how I had this idea to try this was because I was bored and procrastinating from school work (aren’t I always?)…I wanted to be healthy and drink lemon-infused water but I had no lemons at home 😦 There were only grapes in the fridge…and now you know how I thought of this!
This pic is not really clear but you could see the red grapes at the bottom. Look out for the close-up later 🙂 P.S I’m digging this new tumbler I got, doesn’t it look so cute to drink with?
I don’t know about you, but I have never seen such combination before (much less tried it), so the idea of that intrigues me 100%. I know there’s lemon-infused water, but Grapes? :O
And it’s also partly because I just do not like the taste of plain water by itself 😦 (I’m weird, I know, I know), so wouldn’t it be great to find a cooler way to encourage myself to drink water (since we supposedly need to drink 8 glasses of water a day or sth idk)?
So, on to the drink… It was really easy to prepare, I just cut up some seedless red grapes (you could use green ones too it would probably taste the same but I only had red ones on hand so yea) and added it into a cup of ice water. Mix the drink and let it sit for a while for the grape juice to be infused into the water….and tada! It’s done! Easy-peasy 🙂
So this is what the final product looks like! Smells really fruity too! If only you could smell it on your device too…if only there was such a technology….hmmm
My final verdict:
It’s wonderfullllllllllll!!!!!!! 😀 (you could tell from my typing huh) The water tastes legit like grapes–it’s like grape juice but a less sweet version (because I didn’t squash my grapes but you could if you wanted a stronger flavor). It makes me feel like drinking lots and lots more of this, which my body wouldn’t disagree of course! There’s water for hydration, the grapes (which I ate after I finished the drink) are packed with so much nutrients like Vitamin C….I mean what’s not to like right? Oh and it’s really nice and cooling to drink in the summer too! I loved it! ❤
Flavour: 4/5 (It would probably taste stronger if I mash the grapes but I was lazy)
Taste-Test Success? Absolutely yes! I would definitely make this drink again and again and again. I mean it wouldn’t hurt right 😉
This drink kinda tastes different from the lemon-infused water. While the lemon gives the water a zesty, refreshing kick (I’m bad with words pardon my lack of description haha), the grapes give a more fruity flavor–the taste not as sharp as lemon but refreshing nonetheless. If you don’t like the zesty kick of lemon, you should try using grapes instead! It might just change your life……no biggie! (cos it has changed mine I’m gonna be so healthy sipping this drink all day all night hehe)
Till next time! Ciao!
