No, don't do that because you'll remember the flavours FOREVER!!! I don't use any flavouring..did that the first time in only one glass almost 20 years ago..never since.
Here's what I do.....
Pour out your next glass....set the timer for whatever you're doing...10 or 15 minutes. That will take some of the chill out of it and be easier to drink.
When the timer goes off, take a breath in, hold your nose and drink it down without a break. OR.....if you have a straw, put it as far back as you can and drink without breathing in between gulps.
Pour the next glass....set the timer and don't look at the rest of the gallon..lol!
you're leaving it in the fridge, right...make sure you do.
Once you start going...it gets fun..lol!
