Ways to make drinking water taste better. Add flavor to your water.

Are you one of those who drink bottled flavored water?  They are quite expensive and cause you lots of bucks if you keep on buying them, right?  The cheapest and most affordable drink out there is water.  The main reason why people, especially kids, don't drink water is that it is tasteless and not very "fun" and "attractive" to drink. But water has lots of benefits and is healthier than soda.  And instead of buying flavored water, there are many ways you can do to water at home to make it exciting and tasteful to drink.

What can we add to water to make it taste better?

1. Berries

Strawberries have distinct flavour that can be soaked up by water.  Crush or cut a few of the strawberries into the water to make it tasteful and flavored.

2. Citrus

We can use orange, lime, lemon, grapefruit, or calamansi - a common small tropical citrus fruit in our country.  Squeeze the juice from any of these citrus fruits and put it on ice cube trays.  Use these ice cubed citrus juice in your water for flavour which then will also be infused with vitamin C.

3.  Herbs

There are herbs that we can use to flavor drinking water.  You can use mint, lemongrass, and parsley for adding aroma and a hint of green to your water.  To add a little flavor, crush the herbs a little before adding them into your water.

4.  Ginger

Ginger is a great way to add a "spice" to your water. It is also a great way to clear your throat and sinuses during a cold and a cough when added to boiling water.  The flavour of ginger has not always been my cup of tea.  :)

5.  Cucumber

Cucumber has always been one of my favorite foods.  It smells good, too.  Slice the cucumber and add them to your water.  The smell and flavor make your water refreshing to drink especially if chill it a bit.

6.  Vinegar

Adding vinegar is like adding citrus to your water because the taste will become sour except that it has the taste of a vinegar.  I recommend using apple cider vinegar because of its health benefits and it tastes better than any other vinegar.

7.  Salt

Another flavor that you can add to your water is salt.  Aside from ions, salt if added to water can help your body absorb the liquid more quickly because it contains electrolytes.  Water with a little bit of salt is good for workouts, since the body loses salt through sweat.

These are just some of those that you can use to flavor your drinking water.  You can use other kinds of fruits, too, which are commonly used in  bottled flavored drinking water. Make water more exciting to drink by adding flavor to it.  Good for kids who don't like drinking water because it is colorless, tasteless, and flavorless.

Flavor your water to give flavor to life!
