Lilly tea

Are you all enjoying your sweet tea?

Now you want to know how to add a little variety? How to turn this:

Into this?

This is so easy it’s almot not even fair to call it a recipe. But regardless:

  • One quart sweet tea
  • One quart orange juice
  • Lemons

That. Is. It. See how this is barely a recipe? But it is SO good. I found it in Essentially Lilly (although she didn’t use lemons, as I recall), and it’s awesome.

  1. Mix the tea and juice together, shaking the juice well first
  2. Serve over lemon slices and lots of ice
  3. You may or may not be entertained by adding a little vodka to the mix. Just throwing that out there.

Happy summer!

    LOL! I hope so too! 😀

  2. That looks great! I’ve never made sweet tea before, but I’ll definitely give it a shot sometime this summer–that is, if it ever warms up here in the north!

    Just wanted to share my great aunt Minis Honey Lemonade Recipe: 1/2 gallon warm water, 1/2 cup honey, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice. Just mix it all with your hands (their warmth will dissolve the honey and sugar) and pour mixture into a gallon container filled 3/4 with ice. You can even add a sprig of lavander or a slice of fresh ginger for a little extra flare.
