Watermelon Basil Spa Water

I posted my Lemon Berry Spa Water this morning, and sure enough, the entire pitcher is gone before dinner! That can only mean one thing… Try another flavor and make another batch!

1 cup watermelon chunks
Water

1. Crumple the basil leaves in your hands to release their flavor and add to a big pitcher.
2. Add watermelon and then fill with water.
3. Refrigerate until ice cold and enjoy!

I can’t even claim this is a “recipe”, but hopefully it is a great suggestion for a combination that you may not have thought of!

Lemon Berry Spa Water

With the temperatures and humidity levels rising, it becomes even more important to drink large amounts of water. Sports beverages, soft drinks, and juices have way to much sugar in them. Iced tea and diet sodas are loaded with caffeine. Water is always the best option. Keep a pitcher of spa water in your fridge, and you will be surprised at how quickly your family drinks the ice cold and refreshing beverage. The longer it sits, the more flavorful the water becomes, so I suggest making a batch before bed and enjoying it for the day to come. This “recipe” can be modified to include any additions to your water or using club soda instead of flat water. I suggest trying combinations of the following:
Lemon
Lime
Berries
Watermelon
Basil
Cucumber
