Are you in the midst of the Joy Bauer’s Spa Week Daily Challenge? Did you give up soda for 2 weeks? I did. And I am seriously bored of plain old water. I tried iced tea  and orange juice and fizzy water with fruity flavors but nothing is really quite the same as the bubbly “Ahhhh” soda (especially if you’re a recovering addict like me). I have been  super tempted to sip on soda pop again and have been trying ever alternative without success until… THANKFULLY our friend Pam over at Spa Water gave me this delicious, healthy and hydrating  summer recipe to try instead of giving in to carbonated temptation.
