Green Tea Lemonade (Starbucks Copycat)    Printer-Friendly Recipe

From: Momtastic
Makes about 1 ½ cups Green Tea Lemonade before ice

Ingredients

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
Ice cubes

Directions

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!

Boil that water!
