This strawberry green tea lemonade is the perfect mix of sweet and sour, with a fresh green tea base – a combination that’s perfect for spring and summer drinks.
Can’t choose between iced tea and lemonade? You don’t have to! We’ve brewed up our version of a classic Arnold Palmer- half iced tea, half lemonade- just for your enjoyment with the added bonus of delicious strawberries.
This drink is the best of both worlds if you’re both a tea drinker and a lemonade fanatic. Strawberry is one of my favorite flavors, especially in summer when the strawberries are super fresh and beautifully ripe.
Putting a pitcher of this on the table at a summer BBQ would make you the most popular person there! We’re sure you’ll be asked to make this again and again.
On a side note, if you have leftover strawberries and mint, don’t miss the opportunity to mix up some Strawberry Mojitos too.
How to Make Iced Strawberry Green Tea Lemonade
Heat four cups of water in a kettle or pot to 185 degrees F. Then, add the tea bags to a heat-resistant pitcher and pour the hot water over the tea bags. Leave the tea to steep for 3 minutes.
Once the three minutes are up, you can take out the tea bags and throw them away. Add the sugar- or any sweetener- to your desired sweetness. Pour the strawberries and lemon juice into the pitcher, and stir well until fully combined
Add in six cups of ice cubes (or 4 cups of cold water). Chill until cold before drinking.
Tips For Making Iced Strawberry Green Tea Lemonade
If you don’t have a temperature controlled kettle, you can heat the water to boiling and let it sit for 5-10 minutes before steeping the tea.
Adding mint or basil to this iced tea gives it a wonderful pop of flavor. You can also add in other types of berries or fruit if you’d like.
You can make this drink as sweet as you’d like by adjusting the amount of sugar in it. This can be great if you have a family who’s tastes vary wildly.
Equipment for Making Iced Tea
You’ll need a 2-liter pitcher that is heat resistant (so it holds up to adding hot water directly to it), and a fine mesh strainer – like the ones pictured below (click the image to see it on Amazon) – to make this recipe.
If you’re not sure if your pitcher is heat-resistant, don’t pour the hot water or hot simple syrup directly into the pitcher. Allow it to cool first before putting it in the pitcher. Usually, the only time a glass pitcher will shatter is if it’s cold when you pour in hot liquid, but it’s best to be on the safe side.
