Turning Stone Resort’s culinary and spa departments joined forces to create an inviting menu of flavorful and nutritionally infused mineral waters to help cleanse the body and enhance the many benefits of Skaná Spa services. Each infused water drink is made from natural and readily available ingredients. Seasonal flavors include: Blueberry White Pine, a powerhouse of antioxidants; Cranberry Sage, a potent source of vitamins and minerals; and Orange Cinnamon, nature’s vitamin C power fruit.
Chef de Cuisine Mike Tubia, of Wildflowers Restaurant at The Lodge – the Turning Stone hotel that includes Skaná Spa – shared his recipe for the Skaná Spa’s Orange Cinnamon infused water.
Orange Cinnamon Infused Water
Yield: one gallon
2 cinnamon sticks
6 orange peels from six whole oranges; trim away white pith from peels
3 quarts mineral water
1 tablespoon organic maple syrup
1 quart freshly squeezed orange juice
Combine cinnamon, orange peels, mineral water and maple syrup in large pot. Bring to a boil and simmer for five minutes. Remove from heat and allow mixture to cool for one hour. Add fresh squeezed orange juice and chill. Garnish with slices of orange.
Besides the full-service salon, Skaná has 12 treatment rooms, co-ed mineral pool, soaking tubs, steam room, sauna, a luxurious VIP suite with plush amenities including a couple's treatment room, boutique and the Spa Café. Spas of America recently ranked Skaná Spa the No. 2 Casino Spa experience, No. 4 among New York spas and No. 81 globally among the Top 100 Spas of 2011.
Skaná – which means “peace” in the Oneida language – combines modern treatments with the centuries-old healing and wellness principles of the Oneida Indians to create a spa experience that promotes inner peace and harmony.
