Turning Stone Resort’s award-winning Skaná Spa has introduced its autumn selection of popular signature fruit-and-spice infused waters that quench and replenish thirsty bodies with a powerhouse of antioxidant and vitamins.
Chef de Cuisine Michael Zmigrodski, of Wildflowers Restaurant at The Lodge at Turning Stone, a 95-room, AAA Four Diamond all-suite hotel, joined with Skaná Spa to create an inviting menu of fall flavors and nutritionally-infused mineral waters that help cleanse the body and enhance the many benefits of Skaná Spa services.
Autumn’s infused water drinks are each made from natural and readily available ingredients: Tangerine Fennel Thyme, a powerful combination of fruit and herbs low in calories and high in nutritional value that aids digestion, reduces inflammation and boosts metabolism; Ginger Pear, curative and preventative juicy gems good for the immune system, is packed with anti-inflammatory properties; Pomegranate Apple Rosemary, a heart healthy blend of super fruits, stimulates the immune system and brain function; Meyer Lemon Mint, a hybrid of lemon and mandarin, contains an abundant amount of vitamin C, antioxidants and photochemicals that soothe the digestive tract.

Method of Preparation
