Fruit Tea Recipe…

Thought we could use a fun little post and you could maybe use my super easy recipe–it is my current Southern addiction and it must be shared;). Now that the heat is on in the South–out comes the sweet tea. Not everyone loves sweet tea (I can’t imagine!)…but I promise you friends—no one can reject my fruit tea;). You should make some and see for yourself…

Fruit Tea Ingredients
2 Tea bags
1 cup sugar
1 (12 ounce) frozen orange/pineapple juice
1 (12 ounce) frozen lemonade
4-5 Fresh Mint leaves (optional…but in my opinion important;)

Bring approximately 1 quart of water to boil. Turn off heat and place 2 tea bags in water to steep (sit approximately 5 minutes). Pour in pitcher–add sugar, frozen orange/pineapple juice and frozen lemonade. Fill pitcher with water to make 1 gallon. Add mint leaves for a fresh kick. (If you put in frig for later-be sure to stir before serving)

What’s better than a recipe like this???

Well…only one thing. A book FULL of recipes…that will go toward Wiphan Care Ministries! Stay tuned…this baby is being printed right NOW and will be available summer 2010! Yep, that just around the corner!

Here’s a sneak peak of the cover…

I’ll be posting details on how to order and even how to HELP US sell them soon! Have a great week!

Yum! Love Sweet Tea and yours sounds awesome ~ but I will have to rename it to Sweet Andrea Tea for my recipe box. =) Can’t wait to see the cookbook too.

oh, you have found another sweet tea lover!! I became addicted when we lived down south, and I am ecstatic to report that our McD here in NY just started carrying their biggie sweet tea! Oh, it makes this momma’s day doable:) I can’t wait to try yours:)

Thanks! I’m a wannabe Southerner. After spending two years of my life in the south, my children will forever be dressed in smocked clothing and my daughter will wear big bows. I’ll make this tea for my small group!
