Hey! It was actually SUNNY this Memorial Day Weekend! Yahoo!! Normally, it’s raining buckets. And those buckets start raining on Friday afternoon and don’t stop until Tuesday morning. Not this year! This year, the weather was gorgeous and full of sunshine.
We got so much done! Caught up on yard work, cleaned the house, took the pups on a walk, and went to a movie. Working out in the yard made me thirsty. Not just any kind of thirsty- thirsty for the Bellini Raspberry Peach Iced Tea at Olive Garden. But I didn’t want to drive all the way over there just for iced tea. So, I figured out how to make my own. And it tastes just like the stuff at Olive Garden. Plus, for the cost of one glass at the restaurant, I can make a whole pitcher. 🙂
Raspberry Peach Iced Tea
- 6 black tea bags (Lipton)
- 6 cups boiling water
- 4 cups ice cold water
- Raspberry syrup (Torani)
- Peach syrup (Torani)
- Frozen peach slices
- Brew tea: Bring water to a boil and pour over tea bags in a large pitcher. Brew 5-7 minutes, then remove and discard the tea bags. Stir in the cold water and place in the refrigerator until you’re ready to drink some tea.
- Fill each glass about half way with ice. Add 2 Tbsp Raspberry Syrup and 1 Tbsp Peach Syrup. Fill to the top with the chilled brewed tea and stir well. Garnish with frozen peach slices.
Welcome to summer!
