Today is Lemonade Day!

While this summer has been different than the typical one, we can all still enjoy a cool, refreshing glass of lemonade.

This recipe was inspired by Starbucks™ popular passion tea lemonade.

It’s perfect for a Sunday dinner or just to sip while sitting outside at dusk.

I am a particular fan of Passion tea — I drank a LOT of it while I was pregnant. I wish I had thought of adding lemonade to it back then!

Enjoy!

Passion Tea Lemonade

Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time5 mins
Course: Drinks
Cuisine: American
Keyword: lemonade, tea
Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • c. water divided
  • 4 Tazo® Passion® tea bags
  • ¼ c. sugar
  • 4 ” piece lemongrass finely chopped
  • 2 small cinnamon sticks
  • ½ c. fresh lemon juice
  • Ice to serve

Optional Garnish:

  • Fresh lemon slices
  • Sprigs of fresh mint

Instructions

  • Directions:
  • Bring four cups of water to a rapid bowl in a teapot or saucepan. Remove from heat and add tea bags. Allow tea bags to steep for several minutes before discarding.
  • To prepare the infused simple syrup, combine a quarter cup water, sugar, lemongrass, and cinnamon sticks in a small saucepan and place over medium heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until mixture is heated through and starts to thicken, approximately 4-5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and pour through a fine-mesh strainer to separate the solids from the liquid. Discard solids and set the remaining simple syrup aside to cool.
  • Combine the brewed tea, lemon juice, and remaining cup of water in a large pitcher. Add infused simple syrup, to taste, and stir to combine.
  • To serve, fill four chilled glasses with ice before adding the sweetened iced tea mixture. Garnish with lemon slices and sprigs of fresh mint, if using, and serve immediately. Enjoy!
