Sick of drinking water? Add your favorite herbal tea bags to a pitcher of cold water in the refrigerator and let it brew for about an hour so it’s ready whenever you are. In my house, it’s the go-to beverage all year long.
Everyone enjoys a cold drink on a hot summer’s day, whether to remain hydrated or just because it tastes good. However, when beverages come laden with sugar, either naturally occurring (as in 100% fruit juice) or added (like sports and fruit drinks, soda, teas, ades, and the like), our drinks become a source of extra calories that most of us don’t need.
And our bodies generally don’t want.
So I was all set to write a post about my favorite summertime beverage—which also happens to be sugar- and calorie-free—when I recalled I had already done so last year.

Hint: I made it every day while on vacation last week.
And everyone always loves it, kids included.
