Citrus Zinger & Aqua Zinger for sugar free drinks & hydration
The Citrus Zinger & Aqua Zinger, different to other water bottles on the market they let you infuse ingredients (using a clever citrus press in the Citrus Zinger & food filter in the Aqua Zinger) to create your own healthy refreshing drinks without sugar
Try the new Citrus Zinger as a refreshing alternative to pure fruit juices, squashes and sports drinks. Simply unscrew the bottom cup to expose the citrus press. With the cap on, turn the Citrus Zinger on its head and twist / press your citrus halves into the bottle. Leave the citrus inside for extra Zing and replace and tighten the bottom cup. Fill with tap water and add ice if required, replace cap and shake it up. That’s it, your citrus infused water is ready to enjoy. The 600ml capacity Citrus Zinger bottle is:
• Reusable – so helps reduce landfill waste
• Easy to carry with a handy finger hole within the cap
• Easy to fill through the wide opening, large enough to add ice if desired
• Non-leaching and toxin-free
• Made from high-quality food-grade Tritan BPA and EA free plastic
• Dishwasher Safe
• Safe to use with still and pressure tested to take carbonated water
Why Zing? Whether you are taking water for your daily commute, need a refreshing drink whilst working out, a post yoga thirst quencher or perhaps you want to give your children a healthier alternative to squash (children will love to Zing their own citrus) – the Citrus Zinger is a natural way to enjoy juice drinks without the added sugars, preservatives, sweeteners and colourings that can be found in some other soft and sports drinks.
Nutritionist and food technologist, Cathy Lawrence says: “Infusing freshly pressed citrus juices with mineral water or tap water by this method is a simple way to create a refreshing drink which contains close to zero calories and sugars. This is a very healthy option compared with carton fruit juices that can contain the equivalent of over two teaspoons of sugar per 100mls, or with sports drinks that can contain three to four teaspoons of added sugars per 100mls. The zingy flavour of citrus fruits is due to the naturally occurring fruit acids, which once digested, have a beneficial alkalising effect on the body“.
What’s your Zing? Lemons, Limes, Clementines and small oranges work best but you can also add herbs and spices and other nutrients. Why not try; lemon and orange, lemon and cucumber, lime and honey or orange and mint? Just zing your citrus on the press as usual and add slices of fruit, or add fresh herbs and spices to the main vessel of the bottle and infuse. There are no rules against sweetening your water with cane sugar, honey or agave nectar, however we recommend doing so in moderation. You can even keep your Zing for up to three days if refrigerated, then discard.

Running4Women’s thoughts on these products:
Both products were very good quality and very easy to use. They can both be refilled throughout the day and the water still had flavour. Very convenient to take to the gym for an alternative to just water. We would recommend these products.
