What says summer better then a cool glass of lemonade or Iced tea? A combination of the two. All the better shared with friends so here you have it my version of a perfect afternoon:
Green Tea Lemonade
one green tea bag
half a lemon
zest of half a lemon
sprigs of mint
Simple syrup or honey(optional)
Seep tea bag in hot water for about 4 to 5 minutes or to your taste. Let cool a bit. In a tall glass put sprigs of mint and fill with ice. Squeeze lemon and zest into your glass. Pour tea over and add a smig of water if needed. Hint: pour warm or hot liquids onto a silver spoon diffuses the heat somewhat. Add simple syrup or honey to taste.
