Drinking Up the Sunshine #1

My New Favourite Summer Drink #1

Iced Tea

Ingredients:

Lemon and Green Tea teabag (I use Twinings)

Lemon and lime squash

Ice cubes

Cold water

Sugar

Glass or mug (I used a pint glass)

Instructions:

Boil the kettle

Put a teabag into a glass/ mug, and add sugar. I used 1 and a half teaspoons of sugar (I usually have 1 in a cuppa)

Add enough boiling water to cover the teabag and leave to mash for about 2 minutes

Take teabag out and stir to dissolve sugar

Add a dash of squash (about the normal amount for a fairly weak glass of squash)

Add a whole tray of ice cubes and stir to get rid of heat

Top up with cold water (the colder the better)

Enjoy!

I think it would work really well with a sprig of fresh mint, or some lemonade if- unlike me- you can stomach fizzy drinks!

Let me know how you get on! And if you have any other recipes for summer drinks, please leave a link in the comments 🙂

Love,
