Blue Delicious Lemonade

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!  When life gives you delicious tea, make Blue Delicious Lemonade!

 

INGREDIENTS

 

  • 3 tbsp Blue Delicious Tea

  • 5 cups Boiling Water

  • 1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 8 cups cold water

  • Ice Cubes

  • Lemon wedges for garnish

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

 

Pour boiling water over Blue Delicious tea in your favourite tea pot.  Let steep for a few minutes then place the entire pot in the refrigerator.  

 

Let cool for at least an hour (the longer it can cold steep in the fridge, the better the flavour)

 

While the tea cools, lets make some lemonade!

 

Make a simple syrup by bringing one cup of water and one cup of sugar to a boil in a small saucepan.

 

Pour fresh lemon juice and hot syrup into a large juice pitcher.

 

Add cold water and stir.

 

Add ice cubes to cool and lemon wedges to garnish.

 

Once your tea has cooled, fill a tall glass with ice, add cooled Blue Delicious tea halfway up the glass, fill with fresh made lemonade.

 

Garnish with a lemon wedge and find a sunny spot on your porch to enjoy this refreshing quaff!

 

 

NOTE: This is a great recipe to make ahead.  Make your lemonade and brew your tea the night before,  let both sit in the fridge overnight to get the best flavour, and make your Blue Delicious Lemonade the next day!
