Lemon Mint Water

I have to be honest with you...I'm not really into those aluminum water bottles. I've tried, trust me, but I just can't make them work. Maybe it's the fact that they're hard to clean, or that they get that weird smell. It's probably because I'd rather be drinking coffee (ok there, I said it).

This got me thinking about how to make water more exciting. Steering clear of flavored powders and plastic bottles was a priority, and yet I had to find a way to make a ritual out of drinking H2O. I found a glass bottle in my cabinet and filled it with lemon slices and fresh mint. I threw the bottle in my bag, water free, so as not to break my back on my commute. Once I reached my destination, I filled it with cold water and let me just tell you, it was fabulous! I think I may have found a way to hydrate that's both refreshing and good for the environment. No, this doesn't mean I'll be cutting back on the lattes. Please. One thing at a time.


  1. Great idea. Riza has found that cucumber slices are also surprisingly thirst quenching.

  2. Chrissy! Take a look at these: Toronto is loving them, and I like them because I feel like a fancy-pants whenever I drink out of it! - Emma A
