I have a hard time drinking the recommended 8 glasses of water a day. Or at least I did until I started making this drink:
All you do is take fresh mint (which I have growing in abundance in my garden):
Put the mint in a container filled with water, and add in some lemon juice.
Give it a little shake, and there you go. The great thing about this "recipe" is that you can totally make it to your taste. Put as much or as little lemon juice in as you want; decide how many mint leaves you'd like in it.
The longer it sits, the more the flavor comes out (especially the mint). So if you really want to taste the flavors, I recommend keeping two of these going at one time. One to drink from, and one that's steeping. ;)
Drink up, and enjoy being healthy!
