Passion Raspberry Lemonade

It is hot hot hot out there again.  I was riding my bicycle home from work, was dressed for the cool weather this morning and as the sun beat down on me all I could think about was getting a Starbucks Passion Tea Lemonade, minus the sweetener.  That’s my drink of choice on a day like today but unfortunately I wasn’t going to be cycling by a Starbucks and the car was going to be home late this evening.  I suppose I coulda gone out of my way, and it would have been out of my way but I’ve long since been determined to replicate most of food/drink that I found I loved somewhere out there in restaurant land.  Not always successfully but typically I come close enough so that I’m not held hostage by someone else’s kitchen.

So I came up with my own version… and I think it is better.  I was going to use Starbucks’ Passion Tea but instead opted for a different brand and used Passion Raspberry, because I also love raspberries.  Mix it together with some home made lemonade and voila!  A fabulous drink to enjoy as I sit on the swing in my backyard after a hot bike ride.

 

Passion Fruit Raspberry Tea

  • 2 Cups boiling water for the tea
  • 6 tea bags
  • Steep for 15 minutes

Lemonade

  • Juice of 3 freshly squeezed lemons
  • 6 Cups of Water
  • ¼ Cup Sugar (more or less depending on taste)

 

Mix these two together and put store in refrigerator, serve over ice and perhaps a few random raspberries.
