WATER WITH A TWIST

<>

As the temperature starts to rise it’s more important than ever to stay hydrated. Our tip for the summer is to invest in one of the lovely new water urns that are floating around in the stores right now (John Lewis does a nice one).

Here's why we love them... Just top it up in a morning, add the odd ice cube through the day to keep things chilled and place them in a busy spot where everyone passes by regularly to make it even easier to keep those H2O levels topped up. As well as looking pretty stylish, they also make it easy to add in natural flavourings to keep things interesting. Here are three of our favourite natural twists to add to your water cooler this summer…

• Fresh Strawberries & Basil – Wash both well then halve each strawberry and tear the stems off the basil leaves before adding

• Cucumber & Lemongrass – Use a vegetable peeler to slice the cucumber into long ribbons, they will look lovely in the water. Remove the harder outer layer and from the lemongrass before adding

• Grapefruit & Ginger – A lovely zing to it. Slice the ginger into slithers, no need to peel. Cut the grapefruit in half and with the rind still on, slice thinly Enjoy
