Marketers can’t seem to leave water alone. It gets pumped with flavor, charged with energy, and laced with nutrients, but the additives are all too much for me. Still, water gets boring if you have to drink it all day. During a recent lunch at Mixt Greens in San Francisco, I came across Hint water. The pomegranate-tangerine flavor had a touch of citrus and a dash of fruity pomegranate—subtle, like the name implies. It’s now my go-to drink for staying out of a plain-water rut.

Hint Water, $44 for a case of 24 16-ounce bottles
