It has been a really lovely week here. Sunny, blue skies, cool breezes, and low 70's.
The weather put me in the mood for a refreshing drink. During the cooler months, especially when we are feeling blue Brian makes us hot ginger tea.
I thought I would surprise him and make an iced version. Brian LOVES iced drinks!
This is a cool, refreshing drink with a little kick. Plus ginger is really good for you. Change up your drink menu this summer, if you like ginger you will love this fun drink.
Honey Ginger Iced Tea
1/2-3/4 cup peeled and thinly sliced ginger
8 cups water
1/2 cup honey (warmed up)
mint for garnish (optional)
Bring the water to boil in a saucepan over high heat. Add the ginger and simmer for 15 minutes. Cover the pan with a lid and let it steep for about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove the lid and lightly crush the ginger. Strain the mixture into a heat-proof pitcher add the honey and stir to combine. Place in the fridge until cool. To serve get a tall glass and fill it with ice pour over the iced tea and garnish with mint if desired. Enjoy!
