I had a request today to come up with a recipe for some green tea lemonade. This recipe is inspired by the green tea lemonade sold at your local Starbucks. It’s such a fun iced drink with just a right bit of kick to it to get you through your hot summer day.
Please note that I said inspired. I don’t consider this a complete copy cat recipe but encourage you to give it a try.
This was surprisingly easy to make and turned out quite tasty. I’m giving you several options for sweetening your new favorite drink. I used local honey in mine, but feel free to substitute to your liking and sweeten to taste. My drink was only very slightly sweet… just enough to take the edge of the lemon juice.
- 1 tbsp of honey or 1 packet of stevia or 1 tbsp of sugar
- 1 green tea bag
- ½ cup boiling water
- juice from 1 large lemon
- 1 cup cold water
- ice cubes
