Ingredients:

  • 16 oz Cold Water
  • 1/2 Cup Ice
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 5 Strawberries
  • 1/2 Cup Pineapple (Apple or Berry of choice)
  • 4-5 Basil leaves

Fill your cup with water, ice, and vinegar. Add all of your fruit, squeeze and smash it all together and stir the basil leaves in. Allow the mixture to sit while getting ready or driving to study to allow the fruit to really open up and cut the vinegar flavor.
