Pink Lemonade Iced Tea Recipe

Nothing screams summer quite like the classic Pink Lemonade.

 

It was the soft drink of choice during the summer holidays on days out (it was far too indulgent to have on a daily basis) and even now evokes memories of halcyon days.

 

Always good for a twist on a fruit tea, Taylors of Harrogate have introduced a Pink Lemonade tea into their collection. Not only is the packaging truly delightful, but the subtle taste and smell (oohhh, the smell that fills my cupboards is truly UH-MAZING!) is incerdible.

 

Now the sun is shining and BBQ and picnics are a go, it’s nice to enjoy a refreshing drink that isn’t the usual fizzy variety; I stopped drinking fizzy drinks beacuse I am conscious of the amount of sugar (or Aspartame) in each one, and am always looking for an alternative to water, and I’ve only gone and found it, and boy is it delicious and a grown up alternative to the classic Pink Lemonade.

 

Ingredients

  • 2 Pink Lemonade Tea Bags (why not experiment with different flavoured teas- the summer is still young!)
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 cups cold water
  • Handful of ice cubes
  • Lemon slices
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar (I use Stevia, a natural plant extract)

 

Instructions

  • Put the 2 tea bags in a heatproof jug, and pour over the boiling water
  • Leave the tea bags to steep for about 5 minutes
  • Remove the bags and add the cold water, ice cubes and lemon slices
  • Put the jug in the freezer for a few minutes to chill
  • Sit in the sun and enjoy!!
