Muddled Berry & Basil Spritzer

Drinking water hasn’t always been easy for me. But with some doctoring up, with a stir of creativity and color, I have upped my H20 game. With the warmer weather here, it is essential to hydrate and why not enjoy the necessity chore.

I often throw citrus like lemons, limes or oranges and some fresh herbs like, mint, basil, or rosemary in my water pitcher.  But I was feeling strawberries this week… and a little bubbly. Plus when the pitcher is empty, you have some nice fresh herb-infused fruit to eat up and keep you further hydrated. Have fun with your combinations and keep us posted!
