For about a year now, I’ve been trying to cut back on the amount of soda I drink. While I would happily sit and sip on Dr. Pepper all day long, it’s just not a good choice for my waistline or my health. So, for a while I was drinking almost exclusively water with a soda every now and then. But…that got boring. So, I started searching for something to replace my daily soda, and that’s when the good people of Starbucks introduced me to the Iced Passion Tea Lemonade. I know that this isn’t a calorie free drink, and the fact that I must order a Trenta makes it even worse, but for an occasional treat, I’m not going to beat myself up over it. So, during my last trip to Starbucks, I decided to forgo the drive thru and actually go inside so that I could buy a box of the Tazo Passion Tea, which would allow me to make my drink at home.
I think I’ve found my drink of the summer.
It’s so good, I can’t even stand it. Just brew your tea, (If you like your Passion Tea Lemonades from Starbucks sweetened, you will want to add some sugar to the boiling water before you add the tea packet.) dilute it to fill a two quart pitcher, and you’re ready to go.
I fill my glass to the top with ice, just like Starbucks. Then I fill the glass 2/3 full of passion tea. Fill to the top with your favorite lemonade, (I choose Simply Lemonade) and stir and prepare to be addicted. It’s like summertime in a glass…and it’s amazing!
And now, for the pinnable image…
