Water – Part I

23 Jul

I love special, flavored waters.  Great combination of accessibility and indulgence.  (Kind of like Starbucks.)  And it requires very little to put together a flavored water.  Two ingredients, maybe three.  The ingredients are typically household ones, too.  After a week of keeping up with Ali, Ling and the rest of Mike’s crew, a restorative fancy water going into the weekend is in order.

Ice Water with Almond Milk and Cinnamon

Fill a glass 1/3 full with ice.  (If you have those beautiful big square cubes that are trendy right now, that would be perfect.)  Add water until the level is at 2/3.  Add a couple of tablespoons of almond milk and as much cinnamon as you like.  (This is completely an approximation, by the way.)  Stir.  Drink.The milky water is nutty, sweet and refreshing – and very light.  The spicy cinnamon has a caffeine-like, awakening quality.  Perfect afternoon into going-out-for-the-evening drink.  Coaster courtesy of Big Star.

Happy (hot) summer!
