Do you think water is a “boring” beverage? Is it your first beverage choice when you are thirsty? Most of us reach for a soda, lemonade, or other beverage before going to the water “tap”. Well, water is not boring anymore. We can jazz it up to create our own healthy Flavored Water! With a little creativity you can mix and match flavors to create an infinite number of beverage choices using all of the many varieties of flavors in the world.
You may not know this but it is a scientific fact that more things dissolve in water than any other liquid. That is why water is known as the ‘Universal Solvent’. You can change the taste of water by adding an infinite variety of “flavoring agents”–fruit, vegetable, protein drink, cinnamon stick, or flavoring extract. Your choices are limited only by your imagination.
But enough science. Let’s get down to the good stuff, mixing in flavors to your PURE Glass Water bottle….Flavor Enhanced Water! Following the recipe and you will create the most successful (flavorful) result.
Today we are going to make Lemon Cucumber water. Ingredients: ½ Lemon – 5 slices of Cucumber – ice cubes – 500 ml of tap water. (By the way, is a cucumber a fruit or vegetable? read this- http://www.buzzle.com/articles/is-cucumber-a-fruit-or-vegetable.html)
Ok, to begin….Start with an empty Pure Glass Bottle. Cut lemon & cucumber into circular slices to expose water the largest surface area to get the greatest flavor.
Add 10-12 ice cubes to the lemon/cucumber mix, then add water and fill bottle to the top.
Put top on bottle and shake the bottle by turning over the bottle 4-6 times. This method allows for the flavoring of the fruit to spread through the water evenly.
Then drink as required by thirst!
Now you are asking yourself what is the benefit drinking lemon and cucumber in water beyond the great taste? Here’s the answer:
And remember you can refill your PURE Bottle at least 2-3 times or more during the same day and enjoy the benefits of the flavor of the fruit.
