flavorful water, easily made
Plain water can get boring, especially during the dog days of summer, when it's a challenge to stay hydrated. Each liter of these infusions only use a few low-cost ingredients, which is way less expensive than coconut water or sports drinks. A glass or ceramic receptacle is best, but food-grade plastic works well, too. Most infusions take four to 12 hours, so soaking overnight may be ideal, either on a countertop or chilled in the fridge.
