Can water really be cool? Most definitely—if it’s enhanced, infused, and revved up with these thirst-quenching recipes that turn ordinary water into extraordinary, healthful, tasty beverages. Cool Waters shows you how to take water to the next level. Start with Quick Quenchers—recipes like Honeydew-Mint Mist and Blueberry Twist that feature just a few ingredients and easy steps to get you going.

In the Special Sippers chapter, you’ll travel the waters of the world with such enticing concoctions as Key Lime and Vanilla Spritzer and Fruta Bomba. As if that weren’t enough, there’s also a chapter on making specially flavored ice cubes and a guide to creating your own personalized flavored waters. Lovely color photos throughout amply demonstrate that water doesn’t have to be boring anymore.  With Cool Waters, it’s so easy and economical to create pure, one-of-a-kind waters free of caffeine, added sugar, excess calories, and artificial sweeteners, colors, and flavors. And these waters won’t add more plastic bottles to the nation’s landfills. They’re perfect for athletes and other active people, families on the go, hosts and hostesses looking for special nonalcoholic party drinks—in short, anyone who’s ever been, or will ever be, thirtsty.
