Those are some yummy combinations. Has anyone ever tried watermelon. I've seen it once, but never tried it myself. LOL I do like to occasionally add mint from the garden. I have several types growing in my garden. I really like the pineapple mint the most. Although the chocolate mint is a close second.

tea bags (especially herbal, but any) also work great. I use one tea bag in a 20 oz bottle of water, so even if it's caffinated, it's very very veyr weak!

In the summer, two of my favorite drinks are:
1) spa water - take parsley, cucombers, and squeeze a lime into a 1 quart pitcher then chill. pour (I use a strainer) and drink. tastes like drinking grass. you'll think it's wierd, till you try!

2) rasperry and cinnimon water - add one cup crushed rasperries (make sure to eat them, or it's not as healthy) and 1 teaspoon of cinimon to 1/2 quart of water. delicious!

3) rose water - this is new for me. Make regular tea (i make mine weak, to spread out the caffine), and add 1 tablesppon of rose water. god, this is good!

Water tastes great with fresh sliced strawberries and cucumbers in it.

I have quite a lot of mint growing in my yard, and find that a sprig of mint is a nice addition to plain water or iced tea.

I like to put a squeeze of lime in my water. If you do it all the time though, the citric acid can do a number on the enamel on your teeth.

I usually use my "Soda Stream" to make carbonated water. It seems to quench my thirst better than plain water.

I sometimes get tired of plain water and want something else. That's when I turn to lemons and limes and other fruit. Just slice up crush a bit in the pitcher so you release the juices and fill with water. Set in fridge to make it cold and enjoy.
