Hydrating & Refreshing Ideas

Tempt travelers with moisture-boosting ingredients to help them feel hydrated upon landing.

Here are a few healthy ideas for private catering that are incredibly refreshing:

  • Fresh Fruit Sorbet: Make with real fruit and served in a variety of flavors like mango, banana, or lemon.

  • Coconut Water: Naturally hydrating and rich in electrolytes, perfect for maintaining hydration levels during the flight. Serve it chilled and consider flavoring it further (although it’s perfect as is). Make a tray of frozen coconut water and use the cubes as ice – this is a great way to chill the coconut water without watering it down further.

  • Citrus Zest: Submerge lemon, lime, or orange peel into the coconut water.

  • Tea Infusions: Brew herbal teas such as hibiscus, chamomile, or green tea and allow them to cool before mixing them with coconut water for added flavor and health benefits.


Thirst-quenching Water Infusions

With these refreshing and hydrating drinks, add some sparkle to your water offering:

  • Cucumber and Mint: Thinly slice the cucumber and add fresh mint leaves to a pitcher of water. Let it infuse in the refrigerator for a few hours before serving. This combination is incredibly refreshing and helps to cool the body.

  • Citrus Blast: Slice lemons, limes, and oranges and add them to water along with a few sprigs of fresh basil or mint.
