I don’t know about where you guys are, but here it is HOT! Today was brutal, and with two active boys, staying inside all day is just not an option. Therefore, I decided I needed some serious refreshment. I can’t have caffeine, so buying iced tea premade isn’t an option, and as long as I’m making it myself, I decided to punch it up a bit. The beverage I came up with is guaranteed to cool you off, no matter what the thermostat says!
Peach and Raspberry Mint Iced Tea
- 2 tea bags (I like to use Vanilla Rooibos, since it’s naturally decaf and absolutely delicious)
- 12 mint leaves, chopped and/or muddled
- ~ 1 cup frozen raspberries and peach slices
- ~ 1/2 cup peach juice
- whole mint leaves and fresh raspberries for garnish
Boil ~ 2 quarts of water. Put muddled mint in a pitcher with tea bags. Pour in water and steep for 15-20 minutes, so that the tea is very strong. Remove tea bags and add frozen fruit and juice. Allow to cool, then serve over ice with a couple of mint leaves and fresh raspberries for garnish.
