Sassy Water

I’ll admit it. I don’t drink enough water. I find it terribly boring and a survival task that I’m rather forgetful about. I would never forget about food. Never ever. But water? Sigh…what a burden. A couple of years ago I decided I had better make water a more appealing prospect if I intended to keep my skin and insides from drying up completely. I despised the idea of adding sugary powders or liquids so I settled on a natural and delicious alternative; what myself and guests of my home have come to refer to affectionately as, Sassy Water. While I can’t claim to have invented Sassy Water (I sipped my first sass at Ste. Anne’s Spa years ago), I can claim to have made it a signature staple in our kitchen. If friends can expect anything when they come over, you better believe it’s Sassy Water. The remarks I get the most from friends are how easy it would be to recreate Sassy Water in their own homes, and yet they often forget about it as an option until they come for another visit. So, I challenge you to make a pitcher of Sassy Water this week and see how easy and refreshing it is. Here are just a few ways to sass it up!
