We're constantly told to drink more liquids, with water especially recommended for re-hydrating thanks to its lack of any additives or diuretic qualities. But pure water, even the best mineral water money can buy, can be boring to drink all the time. Beverage manufacturers are aware of this with "flavored water" appearing on the shelves next to the regular stuff in recent times. The Aqua Zinger water bottle however, takes a DIY approach to spicing up your liquid intake by means of an attachable food blender.
Aqua Zinger is at its core a water bottle just like any other. It's made from stainless steel and BPA/EA-free Tritan Plastic, it's reusable, easy to clean, and suitable for both hot and cold drinks. What divides Aqua Zinger from other water bottles on the market is the addition of a manual food blender which attaches to the underside.
This blender, which comprises a small plastic container and a detachable metal grinder, accommodates the fruit, vegetables, or herbs you need to liven up plain water. You simply put your choice of ingredients in the blender, damp them down with the grinder, and then attach the whole thing to the bottle. The act of screwing the blender onto the bottom of the bottle is what crushes and mixes the ingredients, so no batteries are required.
The bottle is then filled with water, shaken, and left for a long enough period of time to let the flavors infuse through the fine mesh separating the two components. After which you have a flavored water that should be a pleasure rather than a chore to drink. And of course, although Aqua Anything is marketing this product as a healthy tool to make water taste nicer, other liquids (such as vodka) could be used instead.
Aqua Zinger is available in a choice of four colors and retails for US$25.95 plus shipping.
