(Used in this project: Oval Tags in Tiny Hearts style.)
Low calorie flavored water is all the rage in grocery stores but you can save yourself the big bucks, and those artificial flavors, by making your own at home.
You would be surprised how easy it is to grab a pair of scissors and head out to the garden to find a few things to jazz up plain old water. Herbs such as mint, lemon balm, borage, and basil all take water up a notch in an instant. Fruits and vegetables will also naturally add pizzazz without adding anything chemical. In addition to citrus fruits, try berries, melon, ginger, and cucumber.
I found a great double decker beverage dispenser with a handy ice compartment in the base that amazingly keeps flavored water cool for many hours and makes a perfect self-serve party refresher.
With one level dedicated to a fruity strawberry basil water and the other a cooling cucumber lime, this will appeal to the tastes of everyone at the party.
To make flavored water, simple chop up your ingredients and submerge in water. Let sit for 1 hour then serve chilled.
I chose my two favorite flavors and ordered personalized oval tags to identify each flavor and display on each water dispenser at all my summer get-togethers. I plan to use them all summer long!
Used In This Project:
