Pretty. Refreshing. And pretty refreshing. This unique, naturally pink green tea limeade is the perfect drink for summer – or any other time of year. Now we just need to bring on SUMMER.
INGREDIENTS for 2-3 servings:
100g fresh or frozen raspberries
60g granulated sugar
Zest of one lime
2 bags green tea, or loose leaf green tea in T-sacs
Juice of 2-3 limes (depending on size/juiciness)
Lime slices and/or fresh or frozen raspberries for garnish (optional)
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring the water, raspberries, sugar, and lime zest to a boil. Stir until sugar is dissolved, about a minute or so, then remove the pan from heat.
Add green tea bags and steep for exactly one minute. Remove tea bags.
Let sit for 10 minutes.
Strain through a fine mesh sieve. Discard solids. Let cool to room temperature, about 20 more minutes, and then stir in the fresh lime juice. Add ice to individual glasses and pour over ice to serve. Add lime slices and/or fresh or frozen raspberries to garnish. Serve.
