I have seen all these really cool drink ideas and I was like…. I … want….to …..go…. to…. there….!!!! Sorry, television program reference. Anyway, this is my take on making these drinks; since they are super healthy and I want them to be available to my kids whenever they are thirsty for ‘more than water’ I bought a 3 gallon drink dispenser to sit on the counter. This way they can have one of these super healthy ‘waters’ whenever they want and it’s super convenient for them. I put the jug in the fridge at night and out on the counter during the day. There is a nifty little core in the middle that you keep filled with ice to keep your drink cold. Our first one:
Blackberry-Sage Antioxidant Water
- 10 cups water
- 1 cup blackberries, lightly crushed
- 3-4 sage leaves
Combine ingredients. Sit in fridge over night, can keep adding water as it gets low and drink out of it for the next 48 hours. Then discard fruit and leaves and start over. I made this recipe x3 for my family.
