Completely not knitting related unless you are sipping it from this super cool, "Knit One, Sip One" cup. The stitch pattern on the cup is not only purple, but it looks like the stitch pattern on Ripples and the "One Skein Hat and Wristlettes" patterns. This cup was made just for me (or so it seems).
This recipe was inspired by my wonderful friend Christi who was helping me come up with a caffeinated beverage that wasn't coffee or Mountain Dew. With 3 kids (4 counting hubbie), pregnant, and being a wahm, I NEED caffeine. Just a little to get me going in the morning. I was a major coffee addict, but this morning sickness has made me lose all taste for coffee. I am sad. C'est la vie! But finding this recipe has made me much happier.
Pomegranate Raspberry Green Tea Lemonade
8 bags of Stash Pomegranate Raspberry Green Tea
1 quart of boiling hot water
1/2 cup honey (I prefer raw)
1/2 cup Real Lemon Juice
1 quart water
Steep tea in water for 3-5 min. Remove tea bags and add the honey. Mix well ensuring the honey is dissolved.
Mix in lemon juice and remaining water. Refridgerate until cold.
You can play with this recipe easily. The basics are 1 part double strength green tea to 1 part lemonade. Frozen concentrate works just fine as well as freshly squeezed. I like to add a sprig of fresh mint before adding the boiling water.
