There's nothing like an icy drink a on a sweltering day. During last week's heat wave I discovered a secret weapon to quench my constant thirst and give me super powers (thank you caffeine!). I made it quite quickly to serve to a friend. I was just trying to stretch out the lemonade that we had left in the fridge and remembered this beverage I had recently tasted, Tea It Up. Making it myself meant that I had control of the sweetness factor. It's so easy that I hadn't planned on blogging about it, but upon the first sip we knew I had stumbled upon a winner. In fact, that said friend made sure I took the above photo before we gulped it down.
- Steep 3 black tea bags in 4 cups of hot water.
- Remove tea bags after 5 -10 minutes. You want it strong, but not bitter.
- Pour tea over ice and add lemonade. Ratio of tea to lemonade~ 3:1
Do you have any favorite (and easy) summer coolers that you whip up when the temps rise?
