There is nothing better than a tasty, refreshing drink on a blazing hot, summer day!
Yes, a cold glass of water will do the trick but this southerner always falls for a tall glass of sweet tea, as does her family.
I love to put a spin on a classic favorite, so for your next outdoor gathering when you find you've got a mixed crowd of thirsty kids and adults, whip up a pitcher of this refreshing summer tea. It's ideal for a crowd since you make it in a big batch, but because it's so delicious you'll probably want to have extra on standby - your guests will be coming back for more, for sure!
1 family size tea bag
6 cups HOT water
1 1/2 - 1 3/4 cups sugar (to preference)
1 6 oz can frozen lemonade
1 6 oz can frozen orange juice
10 cups COLD water
Submerge tea bag in hot water for about 20-25 minutes. Add sugar and dissolve. Add juices and water and stir well.
Makes roughly 18 cups.
