iced tea lemonade

It's almost nine pm and it's still over 20 degrees.  Yay!  Summer is here!

Here's what I love about summer:

1) I get to see the sun.  It's out before and after work.

2) It's skirt weather. I don't have too many pants that I love wearing.  I do have a lot of skirts I love wearing though.

3) Gardening!  We plant lots of herbs, fruits and vegetables in our garden.  I love eating the food that grew in our garden.

One of my favourite summer drinks is the shaken iced tea lemonade from Starbucks.  I tried making it at home, and it's just as good as the one from Starbucks.

Here's what you'll need:

2L of water
5 bags of earl grey tea
1 can of frozen lemonade, thawed out for about 20-30mins

Boil the water and pour it into a big pitcher with the tea bags in it.  Let the tea steep for about 5-10mins.  

Remove the tea bags and add the frozen lemonade.   Stir well.

Place the pitcher in the fridge for at least 1 hour.  Once it's nice and cold, remove it from the fridge and add about 2 trays of ice.

Then, pour yourself a tall, cool glass and enjoy the summer sun!
