So any help on this endeavor to keep myself hydrated and reap all the benefits of drinking water I’m all ears! Or eyes. Or whatever.
But some of these muddled infusions sound downright tasty!
I have one that I use that I really like too- cucumber, lemon, ginger, mint, and strawberries. I’ve also tried a lime and cilantro infusion that wasn’t too shabby either.
