Lemon Water

  • To make morning lemon water, first boil water in a kettle or run warm tap water.
  • Grab one lemon juice ice cube and add to a mug. (Or squeeze a lemon half into a mug.)
  • If you're using boiled water, fill the mug a ¼ of the way up with cold water, then top off with hot water from the kettle.
  • If using tap water, fill your glass with warm water.
  • Sip straight away.


If using lemon ice cubes: In the morning, grab a cube and fill your cup the rest of the way with warm water. The cube melts in a flash, leaving you with not-too-hot lemon water that’s sippable right away—all without the mess.
