Here's what I'll be drinking...all summer long

Now that the hot weather is drink of choice from Starbucks is a Venti Shaken Passionfruit Iced Tea Lemonade with a shot of Raspberry's nice, cold and refreshing. However, as I am currently not of the working (outside of the house) world it gets to be a bit pricey.

My solution: Make my own! I know...simple, huh?

I started out with this:

I made sun tea using 7 tea bags and sat my jar in the sun for about 4 hours. I also kept the tea bags in the jar overnight in the fridge.

Then I used these:

When I asked my neighbor if I could have some lemons from her tree, she brought me a bag of 27 lemons.

I used the recipe I found at Simply Recipes to make the lemonade.

Then I combined half iced tea and half lemonade in my glass....and it was right on.

(Minus the passionfruit, plus the pomegranate.)

Thanks for stopping by....

Ooo, that looks fantastic! And so much more affordable than Starbucks. I'm going to have to get my hands on some of that tea so that I can make this drink myself! Yum!
