Continuing my recent theme of summer survival, here are two refreshing beverages you can make at home!
ONE: Country Time Peach or Raspberry Tea
It doesn’t get any easier than mixing water with some powdered drink mix, does it? I know this isn’t the most upscale beverage, but it’s a great option to have on hand! I love being able to offer my guests something other than water without having to stock my fridge full of beverages that might not be consumed.
On the day I took these pictures we only had the Raspberry flavor on hand – which is good – but our favorite is the Peach Harvest!
TWO: Copycat Starbucks Passion Fruit Tea Lemonade
If you like this fruity goodness from Starbucks, you’ll love how simple and inexpensive it is to make at home! You can buy the actual Tazo iced tea bags for less than $4 and have enough to make 6 gallons of tea. It doesn’t get better than that, does it? Here’s how I make mine.
I followed the directions on the tea package to make the tea lemonade:
- Bring 32 oz of water to a boil
- Pour boiling water over the filterbag in a 64 oz pitcher until it is half full
- Let it steep for 5 minutes and remove bag
- Pour 32 oz of lemonade over the tea; serve over ice
To make it extra special, I pop a few blueberries and sliced strawberries into my ice cube trays. It’s pretty and delicious!
Watch me make these two drinks and you’ll see how simple it is!
Where do you stand on fruity tea? Are you a Southern tea purist? 🙂
