Flavoring drinks is now a trend in the cooking industry. Chefs keep discovering new tricks in spicing up the taste of drinks, such as juices, soda, Liquor, beverages, or water. And we love it! 

The flavor is an essential determinant in deciding if we like a drink or not. Sometimes you may enjoy a particular type of juice, for instance, but then often taking it fades its excellent taste. 

Adding extra flavors becomes the best alternative in refreshing its taste. Well, a change is always good to break the monotony.

So how do we add the flavors to the drinks? There are several methods used, but today we focus on injection as one of the common ways.

Injection involves using a kitchen injector, a syringe-like tool to infuse flavors into drinks. If you know how the doctor’s syringe looks, then you are close to understanding the appearance of a kitchen injector.

The process is considered a fast method. With a kitchen injector, it is easy to measure ingredients accurately since it is well-calibrated. These reasons validate it to be your preference when in the kitchen.

There are a variety of flavors that improve the taste of drinks—talk of ginger extracts, fruit extracts of berries or oranges, vanilla cream, amaretto, honey, coffee extracts, lime emulsions amongst others. You are not limited to one or two; the world is yours to explore to find what suits your taste buds.

In this article, Cutlery Advisor shows you different injector recipes for the most popular drinks that make use of some of these flavors and touches on all the ingredients and procedures of preparation step by step. Therefore, you do not have to worry about where to get sources of such related information. We are here for you.
