    4. Stir in LorAnn Blue Raspberry Super-Strength flavoring. Add blue food coloring as desired.

    5. Stir in 1 teaspoon Tart & Sour.

    6. Fill mold cavities* and allow gummies to set at room temperature for about 1 hour or until firm. 

    7. Remove gummies from molds. Allow candies to airdry at room temperature (do not cover) for at least 6 hours. Store dried gummies in an airtight container.

    Use of a dropper to fill mold cavities is recommended.

    Elevate Your Sparkling Water: Flavourings and Extracts DIY Guide

    Elevate Your Sparkling Water: Flavourings and Extracts DIY Guide

    Introduction:
    Sparkling water is a refreshing beverage on its own, but adding flavourings and extracts can take it to a whole new level of enjoyment. Whether you prefer fruity, herbal, or exotic flavors, making your own flavored sparkling water at home allows for creativity and customization. With a few simple ingredients and some inspiration, you can create delicious and unique sparkling water concoctions to delight your taste buds. Here's your DIY guide to flavorings and extracts for sparkling water.

    Fruit Flavorings:

    1.   Citrus Zest: Citrus fruits like lemons, limes, and oranges offer zesty flavors that brighten up sparkling water. Simply peel the outer skin of the fruit, avoiding the bitter white pith, and drop a few twists into your sparkling water.
    2. Berries: Fresh or frozen berries such as strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, or blackberries add a burst of sweetness and color to your drink. Mash them slightly to release their juices before adding them to your sparkling water.
    3. Pineapple: Pineapple chunks or pineapple juice infuse your sparkling water with tropical sweetness. Add a few pieces of fresh pineapple or a splash of juice to instantly transport yourself to a sunny paradise.
    4. Watermelon: Refreshing and hydrating, watermelon chunks or watermelon juice lend a subtle sweetness to sparkling water. Blend fresh watermelon and strain the juice for a pure flavor infusion.

    Herbal and Botanical Extracts:

    1. Mint: Fresh mint leaves bring a cooling and invigorating flavor to sparkling water. Bruise the leaves gently to release their oils before adding them to your drink.
    2. Basil: Fragrant basil leaves impart a subtle herbal note to sparkling water, creating a sophisticated and aromatic beverage. Tear the leaves or muddle them slightly to intensify the flavor.
    3. Lavender: Lavender adds a floral and calming essence to sparkling water, perfect for a relaxing afternoon treat. Use dried culinary lavender buds or a drop of food-grade lavender extract for a delicate flavor infusion.
    4. Rosemary: Earthy and aromatic, rosemary sprigs infuse sparkling water with a hint of pine-like freshness. Crush the rosemary slightly to release its oils before adding it to your drink.

    How to Infuse Sparkling Water:

    1. Start with chilled sparkling water for the best flavor absorption.
    2. Add your desired flavorings or extracts to a glass or pitcher.
    3. Gently muddle fresh ingredients to release their flavors.
    4. Pour the sparkling water over the flavorings.
    5. Let the water sit for a few minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
    6. Stir gently and taste-test. Adjust the ingredients to suit your preferences.
    7. Add ice cubes if desired and enjoy your custom-crafted sparkling water creation!
    Experiment with different combinations of fruit, herbs, and botanicals to discover your favorite flavor profiles. With a bit of creativity and experimentation, you can elevate your sparkling water experience and quench your thirst in style. Cheers to delicious hydration!

      • Remove from heat and strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve to remove the seeds.
      • Stir in the blackberry extract and set aside to cool.
    2. Prepare the Crust:

      • Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C). Line a 9x9-inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on the sides for easy removal.
      • In a bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar, and melted butter. Mix until the mixture resembles wet sand.
      • Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of the prepared baking pan to form an even crust.
      • Bake in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes, then remove and let it cool while you prepare the filling.
    3. Prepare the Cheesecake Filling:

      • In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
      • Gradually add in the granulated sugar and mix until well combined.
      • Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.

    4. Assemble and Bake:

      • Pour the cheesecake filling over the cooled crust in the baking pan.
      • Drop spoonfuls of the blackberry swirl mixture onto the cheesecake filling.
      • Use a knife or a toothpick to gently swirl the blackberry mixture into the cheesecake filling, creating a marbled effect.
    5. Bake the cheesecake bars in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until the edges are set and the center is slightly jiggly.

    6. Cooling and Chilling:

      • Remove the cheesecake bars from the oven and let them cool to room temperature in the pan.
      • Once cooled, refrigerate the bars for at least 3-4 hours, or preferably overnight, to allow them to set completely.
    7. Serve:

      • Use the parchment paper overhang to lift the chilled cheesecake bars out of the pan.
      • Cut them into squares or bars using a sharp knife.
      • Serve the blackberry swirl cheesecake bars chilled, and for an extra touch, you can garnish with fresh blackberries and a dusting of powdered sugar.
