Reader Tip: Add a Splash of Lime To Your Water

TeamSugar member aistea311 recently posted one of my favorite tips. I live by this one every day and definitely think it's worth mentioning.

To spruce up an ordinary bottle of water, add fresh squeezed lime juice. For extra kick, do like aistea311 and add a few packets of Splenda and a splash of club soda.

While it is a super simple tip, it's definitely one worth keeping in your repertoire. If you don't have fresh lemons or limes on hand, you should consider keeping a bottle of 100% lime or lemon juice on hand. I personally have both, and find that it's a nice treat to be able to spruce up my water. Plus, guests are usually wowed when they ask for water and you say, "plain, with lemon, or with lime?"

Yep Atiyah! I was just going to post about it! I keep that in my desk since I never seem to use the lemons or limes that I slice fast enough.

Yum, the only way you can impress friends more is when they ask for water and you say, "still, sparkling, with lemon, or with lime?" (as I always do)

good idea! the water here tastes yucky so adding limes or lemon to the water makes me want to drink it more often

I always request lemon w/ my water, either out or at home. It's very refreshing, and a natural diuretic. I don't use limes, but they would do the trick as well. I like lemon vs. lime.

I've been known to steal my roommate's limes to spruce up San Pellegrino.
