Water as an Indulgence

Since it is recommended that we down eight glasses per day, why not turn your glass into a spa-worthy thirst quencher.  The possiblities are endless, really, and can be as simple as herbs or as layered as fruit, vegetable and herb mixes. 

Place herb, fruit or veggie--or any combinatoin thereof--of your choice into a pitcher or large mason jar (like the half gallon jar pictured above).  Place in fridge for several hours of overnight before serving.  This water really is elegant enough to put out for company. 

Some of my favorite combos include:

peach + rosemary
lemon + thyme
cucumber + basil
cucumber + ginger
licorice (root or tea bags)
lemon + lime
lemon + orange
lemon verbena
watermelon + mint
