We don’t drink a lot of sodas or juices in our house. The kids, my husband and I all drink a lot of water throughout the day and at meals instead.
But since we drink so much water, we like to add flavors to switch things up from time to time. One of our favorite ways is to use beverage enhancers that let us add a burst of flavor whenever we want.
I keep several different flavors and brands in my pantry so I can switch out flavors whenever I want. The pre-packaged envelopes are some of our favorites because they’re easy to take along to restaurants, to the gym or to work.
We all have our favorite flavors, but like them all. The kids love to mix the flavors together too, to get tropical blend flavors.
But the drops aren’t only for water. I’ve used them to add flavor to other beverages too, like fun kid-friendly cocktails for the children, or even more fun adult cocktails for me. I can be creative with the different flavors, and decide how strong or weak to make the flavor based on how much I use. It’s so easy!
