The air is quickly warming up around the country, and we’re not far at all from the dead of summer. That means that staying hydrated is more important than ever, especially if you live in a particularly hot area.
At Kinetico, our water filtration systems enable you and your family to always have a steady supply of clean, filtered drinking water during this important season. For some people, taking a simple liquid and putting a small twist on it can help them remember to drink enough water even when there’s lots going on – with that in mind, here are a couple basic spring or summer drinks we can suggest.
Citrus and Cucumber Water
For many people, adding a basic infusion of citrus and cucumber to water is a fun little spin that keeps them actively drinking. The ingredients you’ll need:
- Half a gallon of water from a high-quality Kinetico filter
- One large lemon
- One large lime
- One large orange
- One large cucumber
- One large pitcher to hold everything
To start with, slice up each of the fruits and veggies into smaller pieces and slide them all into the pitcher. Add your filtered water, then simply give the solution at least a couple hours to sit and infuse together. If you choose to, you can garnish the drink with an orange or a lemon slice to top things off.
Watermelon Mint Agua Fresca
Looking for something a bit more involved? Here are the ingredients you need for a tasty watermelon and mint agua fresca drink that will serve up to eight people:
- Four cups of watermelon (about three pounds worth)
- 24 mint leaves cut down the middle
- Half a cup of purified water
- Eight tablespoons of fine sugar
- Four thin lime slices
- A muddler
For this drink, you first cube and seed four cups of watermelon, then puree your water and watermelon. From here, you’ll make each glass individually – place six mint leaf halves, a tablespoon of sugar and a single lime piece (cut into half-moons, then halved once again) into each glass, then muddle all these together. Add ice to each glass, then pour the watermelon solution in. Stir the drink up, and serve them up.
