Fresh fruits and vegetables infuse sparkling water to make a refreshing island-inspired cooler. Try cubes or balls of melon; slices of lemon, lime, orange, pineapple or cucumber; and a variety of berries to create your own mix. Muddle them in the bottom of the pitcher or add julienned fresh mint or basil for more flavor.
