Refreshing Iced Tea Lemonade

This is a non-traditional take on the classic favorite. Iced tea lemonade is a refreshing, sweet drink that hits the spot on a hot summer day. This 'recipe' combines a fresh glass of iced tea with sweet lemonade iced cubes. It is the drink that keeps getting sweeter, as the ice cubes melt and the sweet lemonade mixes with the iced tea


Recipe yields about 14 cups

Ingredients
16 cups water
1 1/2 cups sugar
6 tea bags (I suggest Taylor of Harrogate's Yorkshire Tea - I love it!)
5 large lemons


In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup of water and sugar. Bring to a boil and heat until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool. This is your simple syrup.


In a large pitcher combine 7 cups of water, juice from all lemons and simple syrup. Mix well.


Add lemonade to ice trays. Place in freezer for 4-5 hours or until cubes have hardened.


Boil 8 cups of water. Add tea bags and brew for 30 minutes - 1 hour. (Depending on how strong you like your tea, you can leave the tea bags in longer!) Remove tea bags and pour tea into a pitcher. Refrigerate to cool.


Pour iced tea into a glass and add a few lemonade iced cubes. Now you have a refreshing cool drink for the hottest of summer days. Enjoy!

While Nawaz Sharif s recent statements have achieved their short term objective of souring Benazir's plans to visit the US in September October, they have strengthened the pro Benazir lobby in Washington. Playing down her Kashmir rhetoric, it projects her as the only moderate of consequence in Pakistan politics, thus indispensable for the US.
