Not every day is Sunday and not every sunny day can be spent at the lake or in the park. So what can we do if the apartment has no balcony and the interior temperature, despite open windows, increased to crazy 40°C? We have to bring the refreshments to our table.
In winter as in summer, most of all, I drink tea. In summer, of course, it has to be icecold tea, best with some fruits and ice cubes. This icecold summer lemonade is made with green tea and a raspberry-kiwi puree. It is prepared super fast, can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days, and boosts your mood – no matter where.
This lemonade is
For one jug you need:
1.5 l green tea (I have used an Earl Grey blend)
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
2 tbsp honey (optional)
lemon juice of one lemon
- Brew a pot of green tea. If you prefer your tea rather strong, leave the tea leaves for a little longer. If your tea has turned out too strong, add some water. While the tea is still warm, dissolve the honey and add the lemon juice. Let the tea cool completely. I usually prepare the tea one night ahead, so that the next day it has cooled completely and I can immediately prepare the lemonade.
- Blend the raspberries and kiwi until you get an ice-like mass. Mix the puree with the tea and stir well.
- Fill a couple of glasses with ice cubes and add the lemonade. If you have time and feel up to a little bit of extra effort, garnish your glasses with a lemon and kiwi slice, such as a few fresh raspberries.
