1. Toss in Some Fresh Fruit
Slice or cube up some fresh organic fruit and drop it into your water for a little flavor and color. Berries, mango, watermelon, pineapple, kiwi and orange are just a few of the colorful fruits which make great additions to a glass of cool water.
2. Toss In Some Rose Hips
If you grow your own roses or know someone who does, consider harvesting a few rose hips and adding them to your drinking water. Rose hips are loaded with vitamin C – one of the richest natural sources on the planet.
3. Make Colored Cubes
Add a drop or two of natural food coloring to water in a glass measuring cup or pitcher full of water. Pour into ice cube trays and freeze to create fun colored ice cubes that not only look pretty when you first drop them into the glass, but will also create nifty color patterns in your water as they begin to melt.
4. Trade Ice For ‘Iced Fruit’
Another cool way (pun intended) to jazz up your boring water is to swap out those boring ice cubes for some iced fruit. This could be as simple as breaking out the frozen berries and dropping a few in the glass. Or you can get creative by adding berries or pieces of fruit to the compartments of an ice cube tray before filling them with water. Once frozen, fill a glass with your homemade iced fruit cubes and top off with water to give the illusion that colorful bits of your favorite produce are suspended throughout the liquid (instead of sitting blandly at the bottom of the glass!)
5. Try Iced Herbs
Just like fruit, you can also make iced herb cubes (which is also a great way to preserve your fresh herbs.) Try them with mint leaves to give summertime beverages a fresh kick with a splash of color!
6. Just the Peels
For a blast of citrus flavor without the pulp and seeds, swap out your lemon, orange or lime slices for just the rind. Citrus fruit peels contain potent oils which will add both flavor and a fresh aroma to your drinking water.
7. Add Fragrant Herbs
Fresh herbs such as basil (for a licorice-like taste), lemongrass (for a kick of citrus), lavender (floral aroma), peppermint or cinnamon can quickly lend a lot of flavor to your water. Get creative with your herbs and try different combinations to keep things interesting.
This technique is especially good for those who grow potted herbs as you’ll always have a fresh supply when you need to jazz up a glass of water!
8. Infuse It Overnight
Get more flavor out of your fruits and herbs by adding them to a pitcher of water and leaving it in the refrigerator overnight. Come morning, your fresh produce will have infused the water with both their flavor and nutrients.
9. Add a Splash of Juice
Add color, flavor and nutrients to your water with a splash of your favorite no-sugar-added juice. Lemon, lime, grapefruit, cranberry and pomegranate are some excellent choices.
You can also pair up juices with complimentary fruit slices to make your water even more interesting. (Try cranberry juice with a fresh lime slice – one of my personal favorites!)
10. Mix In Apple Cider Vinegar
Spice up your boring water and get a daily dose of ultra healthy apple cider vinegar at the same time. About a tablespoon of of ACV added to an average-sized tea cup full of water is a good ratio to start with, though you may need to experiment with more or less to find the flavor which suits you best.
