Summer is filled with fresh flavors, scents and scenes. Flowers are in bloom, gardens are overflowing, and fruits and vegetables taste so much sweeter and fresher. Every year I look forward to that first tomato sandwich made from fresh, garden grown tomatoes. It melts in my mouth (which by the way, I’m having today for lunch).
But how about taking some of those flavors and drinking them? We have run stories about adding fruit to water for an additional flavor (watermelon and strawberries add a sweet taste to plain water), but what about adding some fresh herbs? Or cucumbers?
Yesterday I added some mint leaves to my water bottle and enjoyed that flavor so much I decided to try some lemon verbena in the afternoon, and then some fresh oregano. They all added that little flavor that helped make drinking my 8 glasses a day (especially during this heat wave) a little more flavorful.
