No, it’s not Summer, but one of my favorite treats to have all year is Passion Ice Tea Lemonade! We can all go to the ubiquitous corner coffee shop and pay an arm and a leg for flavored water, but why not make it yourself?!
I have this handy glass carafe which equals about 5 regular sized coffee cups. To avoid anything getting watered down, I use two tea bags per cup, so for this I used 10.
Just throw all of the tea bags in a bowl, boil water, and let steep. Be sure to let it cool down for a while before transferring it to your pitcher. I would recommend using glass so you don’t have to deal with pesky plastic and the color changing – anyways, glass is safer for you!
I simply store the carafe full of cold tea in the fridge until I’m ready for a drink and then add a splash of lemonade!
Give it a try…it’s my favorite alternative to sugary juice!
Ya know, I’m not a tea drinker but I think I would love this passion fruit tea mixed with lemonade! I love how pretty it looks in the carafe too 🙂
Thanks, Stephanie! I hope you get to try it soon and enjoy it!
Happy Monday to you too! I’m glad to hear that you had a great weekend you lucky duck! Seriously thguoh, the coffee addiction I totally get LOL with no kids and a carafe like that sitting around I’d be a goner for sure! I can totally relate to what you’re saying about the hungry fear. I have taken to packing little extra snacks during the day, so that when I do start to feel hungry I can eat and when I’m full, I stop. That way I don’t freak out that my next food is 3 hours away, if that makes sense. Anyway, I hope you have a great week!Joanna @way2gomom
I comment wnheever I especially enjoy a post on a site or I have something to add to the discussion. It is triggered by the fire displayed in the post I read. And after this article Tea Party Anthem. I was actually moved enough to post a thought I do have 2 questions for you if you usually do not mind. Is it simply me or does it appear like a few of these remarks come across as if they are coming from brain dead people? And, if you are writing at other online sites, I’d like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you list the complete urls of your public pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
Gladly, Pravin – I’ll work on gathering the other sites I post to and link them here. Thanks so much for the feedback! 🙂

This is the perfect drink to make and leave in the fridge! Much better than the crystal light I often make out of laziness! 🙂
I used to do the Crystal Light thing too…I think you will like this one! 🙂
