Expert Tips

Be sure to use cranberry juice “cocktail,” which contains added sugar, for this refreshing iced tea. Regular cranberry juice is not as sweet and would make this summer sipper much too tart tasting. To keep tea from becoming cloudy, heat the liquid and steep the tea in non-reactive utensils, such as glass or stainless steel.

Make this tea extra minty by adding a small sprig of fresh mint to each glass.
