Watermelon and water combine for a refreshing and delicious way to get your daily water requirement!

Summer is here and watermelons are abundant. I can't recall a backyard barbecue where we didn't have fresh slices of watermelon. Nowadays, I try to get more than the recommended 8 glasses of water a day, but sometimes I am craving a sweet drink. This Watermelon Scented Water definitely curbs my cravings.

The watermelon infuses the water and gives it a slightly sweet, and glorious Summer taste. It's so easy to create delicious combinations of flavored water, like my Cucumber Mint Water and Blueberry Lemon Water.

Try and make your own fruit flavored water - it is refreshing and invigoration, especially if you are used to sodas or other types of beverages. I love brightening water up with fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs. There are hundreds of combinations to try, and they all make drinking water more fun and delicious.

    1. Yes, but the watermelon will start breaking down, so it is best to drink within one day of making it.

  5. And don't forget to use the watermelon outer skin--just cut it up and put it in your compost. Wonderful, and it decomposes fast. Brings richer soil in your garden, as does the skins of all fruits and veggies. BUT do NOT add meat to a compost bin..
