It is the best way to break-the-fast from the night and cleanse. Drink warm or hot water as it is gentler on the empty stomach. It is important that the water has nothing in it so that is passes through right away. If it contains anything at all, it will stay in your stomach up to one hour so that does not work well.
Why and What happens when we drink water first in the morning:

Over the years I gradually increased my one cup to two cups of hot or warm water. Five years ago when I was at a talk with with a woman from the Indian tradition of healing she asked who in the room drank hot water first thing in the morning? I was in a room full of health-conscious people and all of them put their hands up. Then she asked who drank two cups and I was the only one. Now I drink 3 cups first thing most mornings.
