      The cinnamon takes this from a fruit-flavored water to a more complex taste. Like the Test Kitchen tip recommends, be sure to lightly press the fruit to get some of the flavor out. Also, stir or swish the water after straining to mix the flavors well.

      The sweetness of the pear and the bright tang of the pomegranate, along with the spice of the cinnamon made this my favorite infused water so far.
