Infused waters are everywhere during the summer, so why not change things up for a beautiful fall infused water? It's so easy, and perfect for the beverage buffet or bar. It's an easy do-ahead, too; I have frozen the grapes and fruit cubes a month in advance! Make the beverage display as lovely as the food!
For each 1 gallon jug:
1 large bunch of Globe grapes, washed (organic preferred)
2-3 large blemish-free apples, a mix of red and yellow, washed (organic preferred)
2-3 large blemish-free, organic pears, washed (organic preferred)
One gallon chilled spring or sparkling water
Place the grapes in a large resealable plastic bag and place in the freezer for at least 6 hours, and up to one month before serving.
Core and cut-up the apples and pears and dice into 1/2-inch pieces. Place in a bowl and toss with a small amount of lemon juice to prevent browning.
Place the fruit in ice cub trays (preferably large-size) cover with water, and freeze overnight. Empty the cubes into a resealable plastic bag and store in the freezer for up to one month. (You will need several ice cube trays, and may have to freeze in batches. If there isn't room for all of the fruit, spread it out on a sheet pan and freeze it until you are ready to finish freezing the ice cubes.)
Place the grapes and half of the cubes into the serving container. Add the chilled water. Reserved cubes can be served in the water glasses.
