Looking for hot weather pick-me-ups? Natural flavors are a great compliment to naturally pure spring water.

Add Brian Preston-Campbell’s “Cool Waters: 50 Refreshing, Healthy, Homemade Thirst Quenchers” (Harvard Common Press, $12.95) to your summer reading list for some great recipes on how to add natural flavors your natural spring water. A few ideas are:

Citrus water

· Juice of 1 orange · Juice of 1 lemon · Juice of 1 lime · Juice of 1 ruby red grapefruit · 6 cups still water

Combine all the citrus juices and pour through a fine-mesh strainer (or not, if you don’t mind pulp in your water). Add the water, stir and serve cold over ice. Makes 6 servings.

Pineapple and lime seltzer

· 2 limes · 1 cup still water · 1 cup finely diced fresh pineapple · 10 black peppercorns, crushed · 4 cups chilled sparkling water

Juice the limes and reserve the juiced halves. Add juice to the still water.

Place the diced pineapple, peppercorns and lime halves in a cheesecloth sachet, tie securely and place sachet in the lime water. Let steep for at least 2 hours. Remove sachet and squeeze any liquid remaining back into the water. Add the sparkling water, stir to mix well, and serve cold over ice. Makes 4 servings.
