Light Summer Drink

I’ve always liked drinking my water with a slice of lemon. The lemon adds a simple touch of flavor. During the summer months I love to infuse my water with fresh fruit, cucumbers and herbs. One of my favorite combinations is lemon, strawberries and rosemary. If you want to make a pitcher of flavored water all you have to do is slice up some fresh fruit, cucumbers or herbs of any combination, and place them in a pitcher with ice and cold water and chill for several hours. I usually make mine the night before or in the morning for the afternoon. The water will pick up a light flavor and be the perfect addition to a hot summers day.

  7. Awesome idea. I was in Pottery Barn last weekend and they had some water out for customers. One had lemon and strawberries and the other had cucumbers. I tried the lemon and strawberry and was pleasantly surprised. I'd never tried it before. It was so refreshing. Great idea!
