Simple Pleasure: Icy Lemon Water

Joining Dayle's Simple Pleasures party from A Collection of This and That. Every week participants tell about something small or insignificant that adds joy to their lives.



Today's simple pleasure is icy cold water with lemon slices in it.

During the hot months, we keep a pitcher of it in the refrigerator at all times.  That way, it can be sipped throughout the day when anyone is thirsty.

The lemon slices don't make the water sour. They just add a nice very light flavor.

Icy lemon water can help keep a person hydrated during hot weather.  If one drinks enough of it, it can also assist with weight loss.



Lemon water, anyone?

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SUMMER BEVERAGE?

I am having a little trouble posting this - I'll try again.

You have the best simple pleasure there - I love ice cold water with lemon. I think that quenches the thirst better then every other beverage there is and so pretty.

I'm a water gal, and love lemons in my water. Never considered keeping a pitcher in the frig though. Great idea, Susan! And great simple pleasure.

I'm drinking a lot of this right now with temps up to 122 the past several days. Of course, I would much prefer a Miller Lite. Or a nice glass of Chardonnay. :) Have a happy day. Tammy

Your post made me think about how many times I must have said, 'water with lemon' when ordering at a restaurant. It is a very refreshing drink with no concern about whether or not it is bad for you (a least I hope not)

Love your simple pleasure!

I love lemon water too - but Mr OP not so much. So it's on and off - depends on who fills the pitcher:)

I also love homemade lemonade!

Stay cool Susan!

I'm with you, I try to keep a pitcher of iced water with lemon in the fridge all the time throughout the summer. It just hits the spot on those major hot days!

The addition of lemons to water makes the common extravagant.

Great idea! I often have a hard time remembering to keep myself hydrated in the summer. This would be a treat. And a little weight loss wouldn't be a bad thing...

Blessings, Debbie

What lovely photos! So refreshing, just looking at them!! When I was a young girl, we always had a plastic pitcher of "plain" water in our fridge. We weren't allowed to have soda (or pop, as some people say)unless it was a special occasion, like Friday night pizza!! Or Saturday night popcorn!! Your pitcher is so much prettier but brought back fond memories!
