Like many of you , I just add sliced lemon to the bottom of a 32 ounce glass, then I keep filling it up during the day. Sometimes I add orange, or lime. Sometimes stevia. That way it does not always taste the same.

I know this will sound strange to many....but a bit of apple cider vinegar....really hits the spot on a hot summer day! (OK..I admit dad was partly raised on an Iowa farm....if anyone knows "hot summer days" they do! )

In a gallon pitcher of water, I add a sliced orange, sliced lemon, sliced lime, and a few sliced strawberries. No sugar or sweeetner. Much better than the dry flavor packets that are added to water.

I've been drinking "detox" water but its just water infused with lemons, cucumbers, and mint leaves. It's realyl good and I've had like 3 glasses already! I think I might try other fruits/veggies soon.

I've recently been making herbal raspberry iced tea. Half a lemon and a couple drops of stevia per pitcher and my kids think it's Kool Aid (of course, they've never had Kool Aid, so what do they know?) I totally count it as water, since it's caffeine free.

I like lemon slices or cucumber slices in water, but I'm also happy with plain tap water.

Looks like we all think alike! I also love freshly squeezed lemon in my water.

But I also like a green tea with jasmin or orange in it. Any tea I drink I don't count as water though

I usually have just water , however I do make greentea with lemongrass-green - mint teabags, a brand called TAZO , just like Starbucks green tea I add a splash of lemon & a little honey w/some splenda & ice emoticon , and in the summer months I sometimes infuse water with cucumber, refreshing.

I make my own fused water. My favorite is strawberry kiwi. Just cut up a few strawberries and half of a kiwi and add water. The longer it sets the more flavor you have. I put mine in carbonated water to get that soda feel. You can use the fruit twice. Any fruit can be used. I also add a little stevia to my mixture.

I put a green tea bag in my water to get a little flavor to the water & the advantages of green tea emoticon
