Iced Strawberry Green Tea the Guests will love !

June 24, 2015 Lauren Senior Blending Chef

Ingredients

  • 1 lb strawberries (fresh, washed, trimmed, and quartered)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 lemon

4 cups iced green tea (or champagne, or seltzer, or ginger ale, or the cocktail makings of your dreams)

Combine the strawberries, sugar, water, and lemon zest in a small, heavy saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and cook for about 25 minutes. Strain, pushing down on the strawberries to extract all the juices. Place in a covered container and completely in the fridge (store extras in the fridge, too).

Add about 3 tablespoons of strawberry syrup to a cup of green tea. Stir, and taste to see if you want more syrup. Serve over ice.
