Do you get tired of drinking plain water but don't want to pay exorbitant prices for the store bought bottles or the dry packaged additives? I've been experimenting with flavoring using assorted fruit juices that are already in my fridge and even tried soda pop to give the water a nice little kick . So far my personal favorites are cherry juice or 7-up.
The recipe is simple: 1/4 juice or soda pop to 3/4 water. Of course, there's always the good old fashioned squeeze of a lemon or lime wedge.

I gave up buying bottled water, too; on top of the usual lemon and lime wedges, you can also try sliced cucumber, a few seedless watermelon chunks,orange slices ( love the Mandarins!).
You can also throw a little melon into the blender until it's slushy, pour into ice cube trays and use those to ice your plain tap water.
Lots cheaper and no preservatives!
