A Summer Favorite!

water flavored

The boys are anxiously awaiting a friend who is visiting from out of town.  They are busy prepping a pitcher of water and adding in whatever is on hand!  Today it is lemon balm, blueberries and oranges.  You would think it was a special occasion but we literally do this almost every single day during the summer.  This version turned out so pretty that I just had to run outside and take a picture!

We all really love water believe it or not and I swear this tip of adding herbs and fruit to your water makes you want to drink more, especially when it’s in a glass pitcher staring back at you on your counter!  It just makes you happy looking at – almost too pretty too drink!  Soda isn’t something we have brought into the house very often so this is our version of just jazzing up the same ‘ol, same ‘ol.

We have tried every concoction imaginable.  It is really up to your imagination!  Here are a couple to try but I think what makes the difference is that it’s in a see-through pitcher and it visually is like adding a bouquet of flowers to your counter with that bright pop of color and cheer:

Sliced Cucumbers with Fresh Spearmint

Sliced Strawberries with Peppermint

Sliced Lemons with Lemon Balm

Sliced Peaches and Rosemary

Hope all of you give it a try and have a wonderful summer day!

  1. The picture is beautiful Elayne! I’m salivating just looking at it. Is lemon balm the basil looking herb?
