When I was pregnant with Kenya, I had 2 cravings: vegetable stir fry for breakfast (weird, I know) and sparkling water. Not once in my life had I ever desired a sip of fizzy water and there I was, for nine months straight, chugging gallons of it morning, noon and night. Throw in the juice of one lime and you have no idea how happy a 16 oz. glass of sparkling water could make a human being. I felt as if I was enjoying the most delicious cocktail known to man. I became so addicted to it that after two pregnancies, it's still my daily drink of choice.
We're not big fans of juice or soda in our house, but I still want the kids to have fun, tasty and hydrating drinks that are also good for them. Kenya loves watching me make my lime "soda" and recently got in on the act by creating his own version because he thinks mine is "a little too sour". It's delicious. With just a squeeze of juice and a bit of agave or honey, you too can turn ho-hum water into a cocktail any kid would love!
