Homemade Vitamin Water

Homemade Vitamin Water

Homemade vitamin water is the solution to encourage yourself, and your family, to drink more water. Everyone knows that they should drink more water, but I often hear people complain that they don’t like water. I love water, even the plain stuff, so I don’t really understand how people can not like it, but I realize it’s a common complaint. Right now, it’s 108 degrees […]

Gelled Cherry Rum and Coke Shots
