I digress, a favorite summer beverage: Sweet Tea with Lemonade. Frankly, I don't like really sweet tea, but I've gotten around that. While visiting in Arkansas some years ago, I discovered mixing my sweet tea with lemonade is the answer and the best of both worlds - I did this in fast food places where you dispense your own beverage and ordered this concoction in restaurants, alike.
My simple recipe is to brew strong DECAF tea, enough for 2 quarts, and sweeten while it's still very warm. Add 2 quarts lemonade. Serve over ice and enjoy. Be sure to refrigerate the remaining beverage. I like this so much better that iced tea with lemon.
Hope your week is great and I would love to hear from all of you; especially container gardeners.
