Summertime refreshment

Flavored waters have become a supermarket staple. But what about making your own for a fraction of the cost? Summertime calls for all kinds of creations.  Simply pour water into a pitcher, add the flavorful ingredients, let sit overnight in the refrigerator, and serve over ice in a glass at home or on the road in a water bottle. Some our household favorites include:
  • Cucumber basil water - add cucumber slices and a few basil leaves
  • Agua fresca - add slightly crushed strawberries and watermelon cubes; mint leaves and simple syrup if desired
  • Citrus refresher - add lemon and orange slices
  • Berry - add slightly crushed blackberries and a sprig of rosemary
What water will you create?
