We go through a lot of San Pellegrino mineral water in my house. I love its soft effervescence so, I buy it by the case. I have a really hard time tossing away those pretty green glass bottles, though. So I’ve taken inspiration from some of my favorite local restaurants and started reusing them for filtered tap water, iced tea, etc. I just soak the labels off (they come off really easily), wash ’em, and they’re ready to reuse indefinitely. I think they look lovely arranged for a party — I write on the bottles with a Sharpie and leave the marker out so guests can write their name on their glass, as well. But fear not — the marker comes off in the dishwasher or with a touch of rubbing alcohol. –Megan B.
