Infused Water

Hydration for a hot summer nation: Water infused with fruit, herbs, and even veggies goes down nicely.

Tossing sliced fruit and herbs into water perks up the flavor and makes it more thirst-quenching and replenishing—virtually no sugar added. If you have the time, an hour or two of soaking will impart more flavor to your water. Make large batches to keep your July Fourth party nice and cool. Use these suggested combos: 1. Lime, Mango, Cilantro (pictured, top); 2. Peach & Lemongrass (middle); 3. Mint, Basil, Melon, Cucumber (bottom); or create your own—maybe toss in a sliced jalapeño for a surprise kick.
