We are all warned to avoid soda, juice, and bottled water because of the chemicals in them. I am not a big fan of soda drinks, or juices .. I simply L O V E water. Period. Before, with and after meal. But, I still don’t drink enough water. Aside from my morning coffee, I honestly forget to drink fluids throughout the day. I know that it’s important for my health, but I needed some motivation for starting to make a different type of water. A flavored water. Water with a little something extra. A touch of flavor that my kids (especially my son) would try to drink up instead of juice. I read about all kinds of recipes, and I was tempted to try all kinds of methods for flavoring water. This is something I can make in a minute or two so I can always have flavored water in my fridge for this summer. It is easy to make, healthy and natural. You can combine most fruits with herbs according to your favorite flavors and what you have on hand in your kitchen or fridge.
* Pineapple Flavored Water with Mint. Add a sprig of mint to the jar. Press the mint, so it can release the flavor. Add pineapple pieces, press and twist with a handle of a wooden spoon to release juices. Add ice to the top and then water. Stir, cover, and refrigerate.
* Watermelon Flavored Water with Rosemary. Add a sprig of rosemary to jar and press gently (rosemary releases a strong flavor without much pressing). Add watermelon cubes; twist and press gently to release juices. Fill jar with ice cubes, add water to the top, stir, cover and refrigerate.
* Citrus Flavored Water. Slice 1 orange, and 1 lemon into rounds, then cut the rounds in half. Add to jar, press and twist with a handle of a wooden spoon. Press enough to release some of the juices, but don’t pulverize the fruit into pieces. Fill the jar with ice. Pour in water to the top. Stir, cover and put it in the fridge.
It only takes a few minutes to make several varieties of flavoring water and they will stay fresh for up to 3 days in the fridge. The water is refreshing, healthy, inexpensive, and looks beautiful in a glass.
