Iced Passion Tea Lemonade

Iced Passion Tea Lemonade
Starbucks  Copycat Recipe

Serves 4

1 quart water
1 1/3 cup emonade
1 Tazo Iced Passion Tea bag
1/3 cup simple syrup

To make the Tea:  Brew 1 quart of water in a Dutch Oven over high heat until boiling. Add one bag of Iced Passion Tea and remove from heat. Let brew for about 5 minutes. Remove tea bag and let the tea cool. Add the lemonade and simple syrup. Serve over ice. At Starbucks they shake the heck out of it in a shaker. You can do the same if you have a plastic Starbucks reusable cup. Just pull the straw out and put your finger over the hole.

To make the simple syrup: Add one cup of sugar to one cup of water in a saucepan over medium high heat. Stir until all the sugar dissolves. Reduce heat and let simmer about 10 minutes. Add to jar and let cool.

Notes: The nice thing is that you can adjust this to suit your tastes. If you like a little extra lemony flavor in your drink add the tea above to the glass and then top it off with a splash of lemonade. If you prefer more sweetness, you can certainly be more generous with the simple sugar.
