Passion Tea Lemonade

Enjoy this kitchen-tested recipe packaged in Summer Entertaining: Drinks and Appetizers called Passion Tea Lemonade.

This recipe was inspired by Starbucks™ popular passion tea lemonade. However, this version skips the refined sugar entirely in favor of an infused simple syrup made from honey which plays up the subtle lemongrass and cinnamon flavors found in the Passion® tea blend.

2. To prepare the infused simple syrup, combine a quarter cup water, honey, lemongrass, and cinnamon sticks in a small saucepan and place over medium heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until mixture is heated through and starts to thicken, approximately 4-5 minutes.

3. Remove from heat and pour through a fine mesh strainer to separate the solids from the liquid. Discard solids and set the remaining simple syrup aside to cool.

4. Combine the brewed tea, lemon juice, and remaining cup of water in a large pitcher. Add infused simple syrup, to taste, and stir to combine.
