Lemonade Iced Tea

Lately I’ve been feeling inspired to make drinks at home.  This one is my first and definitely not my last.  I loved how it turned out-Gavin did too! I hate buying herbs in plastic packaging, so I purchased some mint for my herb garden and bought 2 kinds (spearmint & chocolate).  Needless to say, I’m pretty pumped.  The possibilities are endless.  I can’t wait to use them all!

I found this drink best made a day in advance.  The mint lends more of its flavor, thus making it more refreshing.  Perfect for entertaining guests-just make sure you increase the recipe.
Lemonade Iced Tea
Makes just over 10 cups

4 black tea bags
3 cups water

8-10 fresh mint sprigs

7 cups water
1 container lemonade concentrate (I used minute maid)
Lemon slices
Peach slices (optional)
Ice cubes

In a medium sauce pan, boil the water. Add tea bags and steep for 5 minutes. Discard after use.

In a large pitcher, muddle the mint (or use the handle of a wooden spoon) until slightly bruised. Add the tea and lemonade concentrate.

Add lemon and peach slices to the pitcher. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Garnish as desired.

*Note-I find this best made a day in advance.
