Memorial Day weekend is sure to bring some outdoor time and perhaps a few BBQ's. If you are planning on being outdoors for an extended amount of time, be conscious of hydrating yourself frequently. Water is obviously a good bet but there are wonderful ways to make your water a little more tasty so that perhaps you will be encouraged to drink more. Here are a few of our favorite ways to infuse water and make "agua frescas" :
*Cut up a cucumber into thin slices and add them to a pitcher of water with a splash of lemon. Can you say refreshing?
*Slice up some oranges,lemons and mint leaves for a stellar combo
*Add herbs like mint and Rosemary purée
*Purée fruits like watermelon, add a tablespoon of sugar for sweetness if needed, add water
*Tip: be sure to allow your infused water to refrigerate for at least 2 hours so that the flavors will have time to flourish.
From herbs to a sangria styled "agua fresca" to even sliced veggies, adding hints of flavor to water will make for a refreshing and delicious drink that is perfect for hot summer days!
Have a great Thursday!
