One of my most favorite scents in the world is fresh basil. It’s so clean and crisp and natural … sort of like fresh cut grass, but better … because you can eat it. I have never been a big water drinker – I need some flavor in my beverage – so lately I’ve started flavoring my water with basil.

I love it! You get the fresh scent with each sip and a hint of the spicy mint flavor of the basil. I just rip a few leaves in half and stir them into my glass or into a large pitcher. In my latest CB2 catalog, I came across this Ceylon Pitcher with a filter on one side so you can flavor your water, brew tea, whatever. Must have!!

And don’t stop with basil. Water tastes great when infused with cucumber, mint, lemon, lime, and orange too. A great spring / summer taste sensation! READ MORE GREAT POSTS ON MY FULL BLOG, FURIOUS SHIRLEY!
