We all know how important it is to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated. But many of us just don’t find drinking regular water all that enjoyable.
We at Bright Side would like to offer you some simple tricks to make drinking water more enticing. You can do this just by adding different ingredients. We’re sure that you’ll want to try out all of these healthy drinks.
The steps are easy to follow in all the ‘recipes’: just chop up the ingredients, slightly squeeze them to get the juice out, put them in some water and leave it in the fridge. You’ll need about 34 US fl. oz (one liter) of water, and the amount of ingredients can vary depending on your preferences.
Lemon and strawberry
Chop half a lemon into wedges, add a cup of chopped strawberries. Squeeze the juice out of the ingredients. Add a sprig of rosemary (optional) and pour in some water.
Orange, lime and lemon
Put all the ingredients, sliced up, into a jar. Squeeze the juice out, add some mint, then add the water.
Mint and pineapples
You’ll need only a cup of chopped pineapple for this one. Squash all the chunks, add a sprig of mint, and pour in the water
Raspberry and lime
Cut one lime into wedges or rounds, add half a cup of raspberries, and pour in the water.
Blackberry and sage
Slightly squeeze a handful of blackberries and a couple of sage leaves together and add in some water.
Orange, ginger, and pineapple
You will need half a lemon, half a cup of sliced pineapple, and a tablespoon of ground ginger. Add all the ingredients into a jar, squash them together and pour in the water.
Watermelon and rosemary
Take a cup of cubed watermelon and mash it. Add a sprig of rosemary that will instantly release its juice. Don’t mix the ingredients too much as you may risk getting your drink tasting too much of rosemary. Then pour in the water.
Cucumber and mint
Chop half of a cucumber into rounds, slice up a lime, add fresh mint leaves, and pour in some water.
This is a perfect recipe for lazy people. If you want a glass of water that’s seriously tasty and do so in just a few seconds, you can prepare some ice cubes with slices of different fruit, berries or mint beforehand. That way you’ll be able to cool the water quickly and give it a nice taste at any moment.
