Perfect for recharging over the weekend! The Juice Barista Infused Agua, P100 for 250ml.

I’ve been saying that I want to be healthier this year, so I think the Universe heard me! But really, this was such a happy treat because I always look for fun ways to stay hydrated (find out why here).

Can you read what's in the infused agua? Each bottle contains a mixture of fruit. veggies, lemon or lime, herbs, spices, and an edible flower.

I couldn’t really see the edible blossoms—but I liked that! I don’t know, flowers in food (and drinks) really freak me out. But my personal feelings about that aside, I think P100 for all the fruits infused in the bottle isn’t bad—especially if you think about all the vitamins and antioxidants you’re getting.

You can even "re-use" the fruit and add more water, so you get more bang for your buck.

All you have to do is add more water when you’re half-way through the bottle and leave it for 1-2 hours at room temp. You loose a little more flavor whenever you do this, but it’s still worth doing!

Taste test time! Which one do you think I liked better?

The orange-infused drink contains a mixture of lime, mint, kale, cayenne pepper, and the edible blossoms. I was surprised by how strong the flavor was and almost felt like it was really OJ is was drinking. It was a bit bitter (probably because of the lime + orange rind), but still very refreshing.

Aaahh! It doesn't feel like work when you're sipping on something that makes you feel chi-chi. P.S. See the stack of magazines on the floor? Find out why they're there on Sunday Sparkle tomorrow!

So yes, the strawberry-infused agua is my favorite. And really, I didn’t realize that sipping on something fruity (and in a nice bottle!) would help me feel more energized to work. Like it made me happier! Haha, so yay! The flavors: strawberry, cucumber, lemon, basil, cinnamon, and edible blossoms. All my faves!

But this! This is my ultimate fave! The Juice Barista Matcha Mylk, P180.

But this! This is my ultimate fave! The Juice Barista Matcha Mylk, P180. It’s made by hand daily, too.

Maika Perez, the owner of The Juice Barista and my former intern from Cosmo, made this because she wasn’t happy with the dairy-free milk alternatives in the market. So if you’re lactose-intolerant, this is an awesome option for you (it has matcha, coconut milk, and pink himalayan salt). I love it because you can really taste the matcha and it’s just really delish. As in, I’m super saving it and taking little sips only throughout the day! Haha!

Isn’t it cute? I’ve never seen anything like this before! Basically, you fill it up and drink every hour! When your done with the first round at noon, then you fill it up again for the next half of your day. Cool, huh? It may seem a bit hard to tote around because it’s glass, but you can park this by your desk at work. Before you know it, your OC-ness will take over and you’ll be drinking enough H20 daily just to follow the time slots!

    I love drinking lemon water. It’s refreshing and has lot of good benefit to my body. I also drink green juice. It’s a combination of veggies and fruits, etc. Then i’ll use a blender to make smoothie and tadahh… ????

    • Sounds so refreshing! I should try making green juice again :p
