The best thing is that you cannot tell there’s any black pepper in this drink!
Lemon, strawberry, and basil infuse this drink with our favorite summer flavors. No matter what time of year you drink it, this infused water makes you believe it’s shorts and flip flop weather! High quality sea salt, such as Himalayan or gray Celtic salt, play a powerful role in this detox water by adding sodium and other minerals that help facilitate hydration.
