SET A DRINKS TABLE THAT’S AS REFRESHING ON THE EYES AS IT IS ON THE PALATE. FANCY UP A DISPENSER OF COLD WATER WITH SLICES OF LEMON, LIME OR CUCUMBER AND A HANDFUL OF FRESH HERBS. KEEP JAR-STYLE MUGS STACKED WITH ICE AND MORE HERBS SO EVERYONE CAN HELP THEMSELVES TO A HYDRATING, THRIST-QUENCHING DRINK.
