My absolute favorite beverage is simply a huge glass filled to the top with ice, water and fresh lemon juice squeezed into it!
Every morning I fill up my water bottle with ice almost to the brim and purified water, grab a fresh lemon out of the fridge, slice it in half and squeeze the juice into it. I use the juice of half a medium size lemon and drop the actual lemon into my bottle for added flavor. (make sure to wash your lemon thoroughly)
This extremely refreshing and delicious beverage reaps many health benefits as well!!
