Pear, Pomegranate and Clove Water

by Mimi & Vera LevinTastemakers in Residence

Is it just me, or does everyone feel like they get sick more easily during the winter? How do we combat the inevitable winter cold or flu? We have all been told to increase our fluid intake when we have a cold, so why not increase our fluid intake as a preventative measure?

Firstly, nothing makes increasing your fluid intake more appealing than drinking out of a water bottle that you love. With all of the terrible chemicals that go into making many plastic water bottles, I did a lot of research and decided to purchase a Hydro Flask.

For more recipes and tips from Mimi & Vera on Hydro Flask and drinking more fluid; see Hydro Flasks and Water Infusions - Lemon Water - Orange, Cinnamon and Vanilla Bean Homemade Tea.

This combination is great for increasing energy, decreasing inflammation and improving digestion. We recommend making a pitcher and refilling your water bottle from that. 

1 Pear, sliced
Large handful of pomegranate seeds
Cloves, to taste (this is going to depend on the volume of water to which you are adding the cloves… for a pitcher, I like to infuse about five cloves)


  1. When infusing water, try to use organic fruits, and make sure they are completely washed before the infusion process.
