Sip Your Way Skinny: Day 8-Water Sangria

Sip Your Way Skinny is almost over and we have yet to really talk about the most obvious "health drink":
You don't need me to explain to you the health benefits of water.
But I think most of us can admit that water can get a bit boring just by itself all. the. time.
I'd assume that's how soda and juice entered the picture.
But as we already know/have been learning, these alternatives have so. much. sugar.

So how about combining our favorite aspects of the two:
Taking water, adding a few sweet/sour/still nutritious elements, mixing them together and making them look pretty?
We saw a similar idea here, and gave it a try.
We like to call it "Water Sangria" (cause that just sounds more exciting than "flavored water").

Want to know our favorite parts?
1. You can use whatever fruits, herbs, veggies (cucumbers mostly) that you have on hand.
2. It's an effortless yet perfect presentation--the colors are pretty enough without adding any other fancy things.
3. It brings new life and new love to water again.
4. It's a perfect alternative to soda for parties
(or for more of a customized drink feature try our water bar idea)

What about you, what are your thoughts? We'd love to hear!



  1. This looks really refreshing! I had water at a bridal shower recently with cucumbers, lemon, and lime in it and it was really great. I'm a big fan of what you came up with here too!
