While clean water was plentiful at the birth of our country, it didn't have much flavor. The colonialists wasted no time adding different herbs and flavors to their water. Or other potables: beer brewing and distilling were some of the earliest industries of the colonies. Other recipes made their way here from the settlers' native homeland. All we can find are listed below.
