Have I mentioned before that I don’t like to drink water? I know, I know it’s good for me, I should love it, but I don’t. I have to find ways to trick myself into drinking enough water and this Mint and Watermelon Spa Water is my latest water  fake out that has me guzzling it by the gallon!

I love the  fresh watermelon and mint – it’s one of the best combination of flavors that summer has to offer. Each sip is full of fruity flavor that doesn’t bore me at all.
