Keeping it simple with sparkling lemon or lime water
It doesn’t get simpler than this, but for many of us that’s all we’re after! Whether you’re knackered from a long day’s work or starting your day with a bang, a nice glass of lemon or lime water can really hit the spot.
|1 Cup (250ml)||DrinkMate bottle (850ml)|
|Lemon or lime juice (freshly squeezed or ready-made)||1 teaspoon||3 ½ teaspoons|
|Cold Water||1 cup||3 ½ cups|
|Ice||As preferred||As preferred|
|Honey or agave syrup (optional)||To taste (1 – 2 teaspoons)||To taste (3 – 7 teaspoons)|
Note: If you’re using freshly-squeezed lemon or lime juice, make sure you strain it before fizzing your drink up, since you’re only meant to carbonate pulp-free drinks with your DrinkMate. Alternatively, you can of course add the lemon or lime juice to your water after it has been carbonated.
- Pour the lemon or lime juice into a cup or pitcher, then add honey or agave syrup to taste. Mix well to dissolve the honey or agave syrup, then add water.
- Throw it all into your DrinkMate bottle and carbonate.
- Pour into cups and add ice as preferred.
Done – a simple, refreshing serving of sparkling lemon or lime water! You can garnish your drink with lemon or lime slices, a few mint leaves or even a couple of cucumber slices to mix things up.
As simple as it gets, but definitely a favourite in our books!
