I meant to share this last Sunday but kept forgetting! Thank God, I finally remembered to share with you all. This is easy to make and nice to have on hand for on the go. Lemon water is SO good for you. I always rant and rave about the benefits of this so I thought I would repost those and share my new lemon water prep ideas. Good night, y’all!

Ingredients:

Instructions:
