STRAWBERRIES, LEMONS, CUCUMBERS: While many of us like our water neat, we'll take a walk on the wilder side on occasion. Throw in some orange slices. Half a pear. Usually this happens in summer, when the one-two combo of icy drink and cold fruit helps the cool-down. Which is why we're looking at this Infusion Pitcher at Crate & Barrel. It has a center rod where the fruit or veges go, the better to flavor the water without much muss. DRINKS ON THE PATIO: It's $19.95. Now, off to Google what other fruits/herbs/edibles we can employ to flavor up the H20.
