We know hydration is important on hot summer days, but sometimes just plain water is not enough to entice our taste buds. Here is an easy idea to enhance your drinking water with the addition of a few organic flavors! Combine generous slices of jalapeño, lemon, lime, mint, and cucumber with your filtered water in a glass or a pitcher. Allow the mixture to rest a little while for the flavors to mingle, then enjoy! Keep refilling the vessel until the flavors are exhausted, and keep drinking more water so you are well hydrated!
We thank Anne Marie Farrell for the photographs and the great idea!
