Ok, so I know what your thinking, "How could water taste like the 4th of July?" Well...it just does! I mean all you have to do is look at this combination of fruit and water to give your senses an idea of what it will taste like. You can even use watermelon as a substitute for strawberries if you really want to get crazy with your fruit water! Combining fruit and water is an excellent way to hydrate. It infuses the water with vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and flavor that just makes plain water easier to choke down. So the next time you are thirsty, but aren't in the mood for water, reach for some fruit water. (It's also good for hangovers if you found you have overindulged in beer!)
