Lemon Iced Tea for a Crowd

Pin It Now!
There are a lot of great summer drink recipes to be found online.  However, most are not for a large crowd.  I decided to make my own.  It was all gone by the end of the evening, so I will take that as a good sign and share this recipe with you all :)  This recipe made about 2 gallons of drink.


8 Family Size Tea Bags (or 16 regular size)
2-4 Mint Tea Bags (I use Boston Mint Tea)
8 cups boiling water
3 Lemons
2 1/2 cups sugar (more or less to taste)
Water and Ice

1.  Pour 8 cups of boiling water over the tea bags in a heatproof bowl.  Let it sit and steep for at least 30 minutes or for up to 8 hours.

2.  Pour tea into your beverage container and add sugar.

3.  Use a lemon press to squeeze the juice of the lemons into the mixture.

4.  Add water to fill, leaving some space to add a generous amount of ice.

5.  Mix together well.

6.  Add ice.

It is yummy, homemade (which means it does not have the lethal amount of sugar found in store-bought varieties of this drink), and refreshing!  Enjoy!
