In Winter I drink green or herbal teas by the potful. In Summer homemade ice tea or pure water become my favourite beverages. As long as it is cool, refreshing and not sweet.

It does not take much to jazz up water: a handful of berries (or other fruits), some herbs, ice cubes and water. Mix everything together, let infuse and there is your flavoured water.

These beverages are super refreshing on hot days, ideal for garden parties, barbecue dinner or simply as a fruity light refresher in between.
