Starbucks has this fantastic beverage: Shaken Iced Passion Tea Lemonade. It’s one of the most refreshing beverages out there; perfect for a light lunch. Its bright pink color, due to the passion flowers, is a great addition to any party table. After much tinkering, I’ve worked out the recipe!!
What you’ll need:
Tazo Passion tea; 3 bags
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon lemon juice
How to do it:
Brew your tea very strong in a half gallon of water in your usual way, whether that’s by sitting it in the sun for half an hour, making water in your kettle, or my favorite, just letting your hot water run for about 30 seconds & filling your pitcher (we have very hot water).
Let it brew longer than you usually do, so it will be very strong, as mentioned above. If you’re getting ready for a gathering, do this step first. Come back to the tea after you’re done with everything else.
Remove tea bags, & pour tea into gallon pitcher if you haven’t already done so.
Add sugar + lemon juice; stir until dissolved.
Add 1/2 gallon cold water to pitcher or until full; serve over ice.
Voila! Starbucks flavor without the price. It’ll last for about two days (if you & your friends don’t drink it all in one sitting), but be sure to store it in the fridge. Enjoy!
