Spice Up Your Life

Join me for drinks, won’t you?!   photo 2(1)Water, that is!  As the temperature rises and we’re out in the hot sun, it becomes even more important to stay hydrated. We all know we should be drinking lots and lots of water every single day and carry a water bottle everywhere we go. Here are some fun and natural ways to spice up your water. Prepare your beverage in a pitcher and serve at lunch or dinner for a refreshing cocktail alternative, or just store in the fridge to have readily available throughout the day. These additions give your water some zest and look pretty too, especially if you use fun cups and straws!  You can also play around with ice cubes and make them out of juice, add herbs, or fruit!

Add any of the following ingredients to your iced water for an instant pick-me-up:

  • Fresh rosemary
  • Mint leaves
  • Cucumber slices
  • Watermelon pieces
  • Crushed berries
  • Basil leaves
  • Pineapple chunks
  • Peach slices
  • Mango
  • Lemon or lime juice
