Extra information and some other ingredients
There are many other ingredients that can be added in the drink. If the drink is not liked by you in the end because you don’t like its taste, strawberries or pineapple can be added to change the flavor and taste. Orange is possible to be used rather than lemon. But, to be honest with you, I personally like to use a lemon that’s why I always recommend lemon. You are free to use other ingredients instead of pineapple and strawberries.
Important Note: Leaving the drink in the fridge for more than three hours will be a good idea instead of drinking it instantly because cooling will make the taste better. Leaving in the fridge will help supplement dissolve in the water and in the return, you will get a much stronger and excellent taste.
