Lemonade Almond Tea… mmm, mmm, good!

Want an easy and refreshingly different sweet iced tea for the spring/summer? This is my “signature” tea I make and take everywhere iced tea is needed. My husband actually brought this recipe home to me from a business weekend at a country inn, and it’s addictive!

Lemonade Almond Tea

Makes 1 Gallon

To 2 quarts brewed and cooled iced tea,
add
2 cup sugar
1 12 oz can lemonade concentrate thawed
4 tsp almond extract
6 cups water

Mix and serve chilled.

We love this. I’ve tried it with sugar free lemonade and Splenda, but it’s just not as good. 🙂 Hope you enjoy, and have a great Tuesday…

    Mmm! That sounds amazing – I am going to try it out! I’d love to have a “signature ice tea” recipe 🙂
    Right now my summer drink of choice is lemonade – I have posted my favorite lemonade recipe on my recipe blog.
    It would be nice to have an alternative drink to make sometimes tho!

  7. Sounds fantastic! How unique is that! Will have to check it out! (I may have to go with my Equal.)

  8. I found your blog through LPM. Thanks for the tea recipe. We love Iced Tea in the Summer. I know my family will enjoy this.

    What an interesting combination ~ I really like all of the ingredients, would never have thought to put them together though ~ will definately be giving this a try! Thanks for sharing!

  10. I would have never thought of lemonade and almonds going together…I’m very curious to try!

  11. Hi Jennifer,

    Found your blog today through a friend…how nice it has been to read through! And then to discover you’re from Nashville – my best friend lives there – and I knew I’d be checking back often. Also explains why the tea made with splenda just couldn’t cut it?!? 🙂

  12. Thank you for sharing this recipe. It sounds so delicious! I love sweet iced tea…what a nice change of pace to the ordinary!

  13. I am so going to have to try this! It’s lemon season here in S. Africa so I make my own lemonade and often make lemonade iced tea, too! I’m really excited to try this!

  14. I am a HUGE fan of iced tea, so this is just my kind of recipe! I can’t wait to try it. Thanks for sharing!

  15. O I can just taste how good this is. I will have to try this. Thanks Jennifer 🙂

    when I first moved to the south, I had NO idea how huge iced tea was. I had my first dinner party and literally had 5 beverage choices, and the first person I asked, “what would you like?” They said, “What, no iced tea?” He quickly informed me that I have to learn to make it….I still haven’t mastered it but this may be just the recipe to remedy that. 🙂

  18. I’ll have to give this a try..it sounds good.
    I just learned this past week to add to a cup of coffee..a couple drops of Vanilla, a dash of cinnamon and a dolop of whipped creme or just half and half…Oh Honey…it is so delicious. Give it a try..
    Thanks for the recipe…

  19. Jennifer,

    Thanks for sharing this recipe because I can’t wait to try this! It sounds like the iced tea that I have had at Lily Belle’s in downtown Franklin… one of my favorite places to go with my sister. If you haven’t been there you definitely need to visit. Have a great day!

  20. Jennifer,Thanks for sharing.I will try this.Hope you have a great day!Blessings, Faye
