Summertime calls for refreshing drinks and this Green Tea Lemonade is the ultimate refresher. Move over Starbucks, I’ve got this one covered.
Green Tea Lemonade (Starbucks Copycat) Printer-Friendly Recipe
Makes about 1 ½ cups Green Tea Lemonade before ice
3 tablespoons granulated sugar, plus more to taste
1 green tea bag
½ cup boiling water
¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 2 lemons)
¾ cup cold water
Boil 1/2 cup of water and add to a glass with 3 tablespoons of sugar and a green tea bag. Steep the tea for about 3 minutes. Remove the bag and stir to help dissolve the sugar. Add in the lemon juice and 3/4 cup cold water. Stir well. Do a taste test-if you want a less tart tea, add a little more sugar. Pour the tea over ice. Enjoy!
