The week is still young. We’re days away from the weekend yet, and we need a little reminder of those days long gone. Those days where we acted without inhibitions. Where a weekend could pop up in the middle of a week.

Luckily for you reading this post, we have a perfectly fitting, mid-week treat to share with you. But before you go stirring around in your liquor cabinet, you may want to hear one quite brilliant man’s words on another very important part of any good cocktail…

“The water is as important as the liquor. I’m going on record to say this. I’ve also written about how important the ice is to a cocktail. That’s why I like to control the quality of my water.

My water filter is no less important than the quality of my spirits. True, my home is located on a particularly pure water source and I get to this source through a well. Unfortunately, this water source is packed with minerals that burn right through the copper lines.

Without filtration, the water can take on a cloudy appearance. Hence my Mavea, Inspired Water Pitcher.” – Warren Bobrow

The Misbegotten Youth Cocktail (for 1 cocktail):
2oz La Clandestine Absinthe (or your choice, I love Tenneyson, Lucid, Nouvelle Orleans, St. Georges, Amerique 1912, and the list goes on…)
1/4 cup of fresh blueberries
Simple syrup
Crushed Mavea-filtered ice
Mavea-filtered water
Fresh mint for garnish
Blueberries frozen into Mavea-filtered ice cubes

Preparation:
Muddle the fresh blueberries in a Boston Shaker. Add 2oz of the absinthe, 2oz simple syrup, some crushed Mavea-filtered ice, and 3oz of cool Mavea-filtered water. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint, and drink very carefully and with passion!

1. Weight loss
Water is one of the best tools for weight loss, not only because it often replaces high-calorie drinks like soda or juice, but it’s also a great appetite suppressant. Often, when we think we’re hungry, we’re actually just thirsty!

2. Heart healthy
Drinking a good amount of water could lower your risks of a heart attack. A six-year study published on May 1, 2002 in the American Journal of Epidemiology found that those who drink more than 5 glasses of water a day were 41% less likely to die from a heart attack during the study period than those who drank less than two glasses.

3. Energy
Being dehydrated can sap your energy and make you feel tired — even mild dehydration of as little as 1 or 2 percent of your body weight. If you’re thirsty, you’re already dehydrated — and this can lead to fatigue, muscle weakness, dizziness and other symptoms.

4. Healthy skin
Drinking water can clear up your skin and people often report a healthy glow after drinking water. It won’t happen overnight, of course, but just a week of drinking a healthy amount of water can have good effects on your skin.

5. Digestive problems
Our digestive systems need a good amount of water to digest food properly. Often water can help cure stomach acid problems, and water along with fiber can cure constipation (often a result of dehydration).
