Summer days are here and keeping a jug of chilled water with mint and lemon on hand can help you keep your cool. Yes, you could just drink water, but there is something about the combination of mint and lemon that is fresh, restorative, and keeps you coming back for more. And that way, you stay hydrated and alert. Add ice if keeping the drink at room temperature. The lemon and mint will go several rounds of topping up, but are best replaced daily.
Use unwaxed lemons, and you don’t need much to flavour a jug of water, and large sprigs of washed mint still on the stem.
