I like making my own flavored water, and now that it’s autumn, I thought I’d try a water recipe with the flavors of fall, and apples and cinnamon are such a classic autumn flavor combination. There are sliced apples and cinnamon sticks in this, and I added some slices of fresh ginger root for a little extra mild spice. It’s really refreshing!
I’ve always liked cranberry-flavored things, whether it’s a dessert or just a glass of juice. Well, here’s an easy way to make your typical glass of cranberry juice a little more special. I saw this idea in an Ocean Spray® ad, and it’s on OceanSpray.com (the photo is from there, too). I also like to squeeze just a little lime juice into this.
