Every health magazine I’ve ever read has told me to "drink more water”. The problem is that I just don’t like the taste of plain water. I need some flavor to enjoy consuming it at home or on the go. To improve my water intake, I’ve decide to make my own naturally flavored water and store it in my fridge using Rubbermaid’s Carafe.
I've experimented with a number of recipes using lemon, limes, mint, honey and ginger. My favorite is a mix of lemon and limes, but here's another twist on lemon & lime by adding mint: 1 Large Lemon, 2 Limes and 2-3 sprigs of Mint (make sure to wash all thoroughly). Cut the lemon and lime into wedges and lightly squeeze some into the juice into the container and toss in the cleaned mint into the Carafe. Now just add filtered water and place the full Carafe in the fridge!
I love going into my fridge and seeing this beautiful Rubbermaid Carafe full of color and taste! This has been a great trick to get me to drink more water at home and it makes me feel like I’m at a fancy resort. Also I can easily fill up a Rubbermaid reusable water bottle from the Carafe for tasty on-the-go water!
