7 Recipes to Make Drinking Water More Delightful​

1. Lemon Mint Water

This is the tried and true detox water. Lemon water with a little fresh mint adds a refreshing twist. This is my number one go-to beverage since it tastes great, its easy to make, and the lemon is great for your digestive system.

How to make it: 

Get a glass with some fresh water. Add lemon to taste (at least 1/2 lemon per cup) and a few fresh mint leaves. You can mash up the mint a little to release more of that minty flavor. You can make this and drink it right away or make a pitcher and leave it in your refrigerator overnight. 

Do you take your water to go? Check out this water infuser bottle. You can add your ingredients to the special fruit container inside of the bottle and simply refill your bottle throughout the day. It makes it a breeze to drink more water.

2. Raspberry Lemonade

This detox water offers similar benefits to the lemon water above, only with a different flavor twist. Fresh raspberries infuse their sweet flavor into your water and really help offset the flavor of just plain old water.

This is a drink you may want to leave in your fridge overnight. The raspberries take a little longer to infuse into your water. The longer you let them marinate the better infused your water will be.
