Water flavor
by Calvin Trent

Not everybody has a taste for water, but we all need it to ensure that our bodies continue functioning properly. If you want to drink more water, but aren’t crazy about the taste, here are some tips that can make it more enjoyable:

1. Add fresh fruit. Citrus fruits, such as lemons, limes, and oranges, are water enhancers, but other fruit flavors might also tempt your taste buds. Try crushing fresh raspberries or watermelon into your water, or adding strawberry slices. Cucumber and fresh mint are refreshing flavors also.

2. Use juice. Any fruit juice can be a good base flavor for water, but Many people prefer sparkling to still water. Try bubbly seltzer, a carbonated water. You can add fresh fruit or natural juice flavors to your seltzer.

4. Get creative with ice. Some say that ice water tastes better than water served at room temperature. If that’s so, flavored ice cubes may make an even better drink. Use some of the flavoring suggestions above and start experimenting with fresh fruit, mint, or cucumber ice cubes. You may also consider juice, tea, or coffee cubes.

5. Drink tea. Herbal, fruit, green, white, and red teas are generally considered to be better for you than black teas. And there are countless flavors of these teas to choose from. Start with the selection at your local market or health food store.

6. Try bouillons, broths, and consommés. You may pass on tea and start sipping one of these hot liquids instead. Because soup is water-based, a cup of hot soup will count toward your daily fluid consumption.

7. Add fast flavor. If you’re looking for a quickand- easy flavor booster, you might also consider sugar-free drink mixes, and flavor cartridges.
