The weather reached well into the 80s this week in Pittsburgh. It certainly was not a good time for my central air conditioning to stop running. Especially considering it’s only two years old and we just made the last payment. In a desperate attempt to stay cool, I found solace in this refreshing beverage.
I love the combination of all three flavors wrapped into one. When I’m feeling feisty, I add a splash of sparkling water and a shot of vodka for an extra kick.
Thankfully all is well with the air conditioner. Everything was covered under the warranty and no charge for the service visit.
I’ll drink to that!
- 1 (64 oz) jug cranberry juice, not cocktail
- 5 green tea bags
- 10-12 fresh mint leaves
- 2 Tbl. honey
- Bring the cranberry juice to a boil in a large pot. Add mint leaves and honey to a large heat-safe pitcher.
- Pour the cranberry juice in the pitcher and add tea bags. Steep for 5-10 minutes. Strain the liquid and allow to cool. Serve over ice.
