The Best-Tasting Water

Water makes up so much of what we eat and drink—why not obsess a little bit over getting the best-tasting water possible?

Note: To make measuring out the tiny quantities of minerals needed easier on you, we recommend first making a concentrated "electrolyte solution" and then adding just 10g (10mL or 2 tsp) of that solution to 1 L of distilled or otherwise purified water.

Calcium chloride is available from most homebrew or winemaking shops. Magnesium chloride is available as a dietary supplement. Go for the liquid form if possible; solid pills may contain bulking agents such as calcium.
