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
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!
