I knew I was on to something when I was a young teenager and first started to drink lots of water as part of my beauty regime. I used to pick one of my mum’s nicest glasses, decorate it with a slice of lemon and drink through a straw, pretending it was a cocktail and I was a movie star from the golden age of Hollywood. But over the years I’ve become lazy, stopped dreaming about movie stardom and a glass of water has become, well just a glass of water.
But how much more elegant and tasty it is when you replace some of the ice cubes with frozen raspberries? Not only do they look lovely but they make the water taste nice too. Match the straw to the decor (or the raspberries) et voilà, suddenly boring old tap water has become something much more stylish and interesting.
