My favorite summer iced tea recipe – Lemonade Almond Tea

It’s now officially “summer” to me.  The kids have been out of school for a few days, it’s super hot outside, I have the beginnings of a slight tan, and VBS is just around the corner!  One of my favorite things to serve in the summer is this iced tea.  It’s kind of my “signature” tea that I make and take everywhere iced tea is needed. My husband actually brought this recipe home to me years ago from a business retreat at a country inn, and it’s been an addiction of mine ever since!  I try to keep the ingredients on hand at all times… just in case an occasion to need a special iced tea pops up unexpectedly… or in case I’m wantin’ something sugary sweet and lemony fresh and delightfully Southern to sip on, y’all. 😉

If you’re a fan of  sweet tea, then Southern or not, I think you’ll really enjoy this.

Happy beginning of Summer!


Lemonade Almond Tea

Makes 1 Gallon

To 2 quarts brewed and cooled iced tea,
2 cup sugar (or a little less, if you must)
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…It works somewhat, but it’s just not as good. :-)
