Okay, let’s be honest: we all know how good for you water is. It’s refreshing, energizing, and just plain healthy! But sometimes, water is just so…blah! No worries, though, we’ve got your back. Turns out that, like everything, jazzing up water is just a matter of the right ingredients. These recipes are easy and SO refreshing in the warmer spring weather. So grab some fruit, fresh herbs, and lots of refreshing water — and turn your water into something extra special!
1. Zesty Citrus Water
1 handful fresh mint
lemon or lime juice
This is water with lemon taken to the next level! The citrus and mint complement each other and create an amazing flavor that’s perfectly refreshing! Wash all of your fruit. Slice up the lemons and limes into rounds and add them to a 2 quart glass pitcher filled about ¾ with ice water. Quarter an orange and squeeze in all of the juice, then toss in the squeezed quarters. Add a handful of fresh mint along with an additional squeeze of lemon or lime juice to taste.
2. Cool Cucumber Water
1 medium cucumber
1 large handful of fresh mint
1 tsp of fresh ginger
This water reminds us of those fancy spas, but it’s way less expensive! Wash the fruit. Slice up the cucumber and add it to a large pitcher of water filled about ¾ with ice water. Cut one of the lemons in half and squeeze the juice from the it into the water. Slice the other lemon and drop the slices into your water. Throw in a handful of fresh mint and a tsp of grated ginger, and voila, a refreshing detox water that will keep you hydrated all year long!
3. Very Berry Water
1 cup raspberries
1 cup blackberries
This water recipe couldn’t get easier (or more delicious!). Gently muddle the berries with a wooden spoon and add them to a 2-quart pitcher of fresh ice-water. Squeeze in the juice of 1 lime. Slice up the remaining lime into rounds and drop some in for color. Sit back, relax, and refresh.
Note: The flavors will intensify the longer you keep the water, up to 3 days, in the fridge.
