20 Tips to Make Drinking Water Taste Better

Add a squeeze of lemon or lime (or both).
INFUSE WITH FRUIT
Fill a large jug with water, sliced fruit (try citrus, berries or melon) and ice; refrigerate overnight.
SOAK IT IN FLAVOR
Let pineapple chunks soak in water for at least two hours.
MAKE A MASH
Mash up blueberries or raspberries in the bottom of your glass, then add sparkling or still water.
MAKE A SPLASH
Pour in a splash of unsweetened cranberry juice.
Make ice cubes out of no-sugar-added juice and add to sparkling or still water and cranberry juicewater.
Tear up some fresh mint leaves and leave to steep in water before drinking.
Add sliced cucumber for a refreshing zing.
Freeze clementine slices and use as ice cubes.
MIX IT UP
Flavor with Crystal Light (or other sugar-free mix such as Lipton’s Green Tea).
Make half the glass sparkling water, half the glass still water; it’s not as gassy as sparkling alone.
SPICE IT UP
Crush some basil leaves, add to water and leave overnight.
After boiling vegetables, such as carrots, reserve the water and chill overnight for a vitamin-packed blast of flavor.
Add some artificial sweetener, like Splenda or Stevia, to give your drink pep without the calories.
Add a few drops of rose water.
Brew green or white tea, then chill.
PICK AN HERB
Add an herbal tea bag like passion fruit; heat with lemon.
GRAB A SODA
Add a splash of your favorite diet soda to plain seltzer water.
Try no-cal Metromint water (in flavors like Peppermint, Spearmint, Cherry Mint and Chocolate Mint).
TAKE IT TO THE TROPICS
Add a dash of Acai juice blend, like Sambazon.
