Was one of your New Year’s resolutions to give up soda or sweet drinks? Or, do you get tired of dull old water? Well fear not, because I have the perfect savory drink to satisfy your sweet tooth. I introduce to you, naturally flavored water! This drink is great to take with you on the go or just to sip on at home! It basically has zero calories, but a boatload of flavor! Here are a few of my favorite recipes:

– Raspberry Lime Flavored Water: Cut 2 limes into 4 pieces each. Squeeze the juice from the limes into the jar, and then throw the squeezed limes into the jar. Add raspberries. Take a wooden spoon and press on the fruit to release some of the juices, but don’t totally pulverize the fruit. Fill the jar with ice and then fill water to the top. Stir the mixture, cover, and refrigerate.

– Watermelon Rosemary Flavored Water: Add a sprig of rosemary to the jar and press it with a wooden spoon to release some of its flavor. Cube a watermelon and add the cubes. Press gently on the cubes with a wooden spoon to release the juices. Fill your jar with ice cubes, add water to the top and stir. Cover the mixture and refrigerate.

Let your mixtures sit in the fridge for about 24 hours to let the flavors mix into the water. Then, enjoy! The mixture in the picture is blackberries and lime! Yummy!

XOXO, Chels
