Make Water Taste Better, More Interesting

This Sparked Me!

I take food grade extracts and add a drop or two.
EG: Mint extract, Peppermint Extract, Orange Extract, Raspberry extract
Find these in the spices aisle of your supermarket. You would normally use them in cooking or baking, but a few drops to your water will make drinking 8+ glasses a day more fun!

    I do this all the time and it really helps. Also, if you don't usually keep these types of items in your home but you buy fruit, squeeze your own juice and add to your water. Cheers emoticon

    I thought of this a long time ago, but I hadn't thought of it since I joined SP. Thanks for the reminder.

    I like a drop or two of lemon juice or a squeeze of lemon in my water.
