Ok maybe you just want to go from Plain Jane Water to Rock Star Water for the day or maybe you really want to convert some water haters, regardless lets do it!
From The Store
The next time you go grocery shopping grab some fresh produce to liven up your drinks.
Mix it Up
Slice your lemon, limes, and strawberries into your mason jar and fill with water either refrigerate or drink immediately. Mash or muddle your berries and squeeze your lemons and lime for a more intense flavored water.
I tend to leave the fruit in my glass and refill it with water throughout the day. You can either eat the fruit or dispose of it at the end of the day. It really just depends how much the fruit has broken down by then.
*Sometimes I add kiwi to this drink which makes it a bit sour so you may need to add a bit of sweetener or honey if you end up with water more sour than you can handle.
Herbal Infused Water
Try adding a Raspberry Iced Tea bag to your fruit mixture for added zing. You could also jazz it up by adding sparkling water. Yum! Most fruit flavored herbal teas add a delicate new flavor to plain old water.
Cranberry Citrus Water
From the Store
- 100% Cranberry juice ( I used 2oz.)
- Sweetener (optional)
Mix It Up
Slice your lemons and limes and add to your jar or cup, add cranberry juice, sweetener, and top with water. Stir or shake and you are ready to enjoy.
Try a Bit of Bubbly Water
I remember the first time I ever had bubbly water. I was 16 and had just landed in Italy on a school trip.
I asked for water and they asked with or without gas. Having a hard time understanding the gentlemen’s Italian accent, we concluded that he was asking me if I wanted the water in a glass. That was definitely not his question. I almost spit water everywhere! I really learned a lesson that day.
Since then I have acquired a taste for it and you should definitely give it a chance. Especially since there are all kinds of different flavors to try out these days.
Plain sparkling water like Topo Chico or San Pellegrino is yummy too!
My personal favorite is Black Raspberry but I have tried Strawberry and its delicious as well!
