by Andrew Ciccone December 18, 2018

During the holidays we all happily join together and share the spirit of the season. At your happy gatherings, start of the season with a healthful, cool, tasty drink.

Enjoy these delicious watery drinks great for any occasion. Cheers to this joyous season!

APPLE CINNAMON GINGER WATER - Prepare this drink the night before the big event. Refrigerate overnight. The apples will start to brown a little and the water does get a little cloudy as it chills. To prevent the apples from browning, squeeze fresh lemon juice when slicing.

Add color to your drink, slice up several different kinds of apples such as the Gala apple and a Fuji apple are very sweet. Beyond color, select apples that give your drink the best taste.

(Serves 4) In a Large pitcher add and stir together . . .

  • 8 cups of water
  • 2 medium organic apples, cut into thin slices (if you don’t use organic, peel your apples so you don’t get the pesticides from the skins in your water)
  • 4 to 6 cinnamon sticks
  • 6 thin slices of peeled fresh ginger root
  • Refrigerate overnight before serving.

When ready to serve, add ice cubes to pitcher and stir right before serving or add ice to individual serving glasses and pour your flavored water over the ice. Add seltzer water to make your drink fizz.  

Imagine showering in pure spring water. You'll have softer skin and silkier hair, guaranteed! Shower yourself in love with the award winning Sprite FXS-BN-S3 ShowerUp Single Brushed Nickel Rainfall Shower Filter.

All winter she’s been growing more powerful.
Radiant, says the man at the bar.
