Recently, hubby and I gave up drinking soda in an effort to eat healthier. At first we were extremely tired, even with drinking coffee. I am also somewhat of a water snob. Well, not really a snob, per se, but I can taste differences in waters. I know, it seems weird. We have a water filter that I love and it does a great job filtering out the chemical taste in our local water. However, I still was craving something that would keep my drink cold and make it taste a little more exciting. I didn't want to get into drink mixes, since they're made out of chemicals that probably aren't too good for me either.
I turned to the lemon. You always seem to get a lemon wedge on the side of your glass of water at restaurants, so why not use it to improve my water now?
I sliced up a lemon and filled a cupcake pan with water. I then placed a lemon slice in each space and placed in the freezer for about an hour. Once they were frozen, I knocked the bottom of the pan on the counter to loosen the ice cubes up. I placed the ice cubes in a plastic bag in the freezer and used them as needed.
