Chill out with this fresh brewed iced tea drink, with mint and cranberry juice cocktail. Love mint? Add an extra sprig to each cold glass when serving.
cups cranberry juice cocktail
tea bags black tea
mint leaves (1 inch each)
Heat cranberry juice cocktail to boiling in 2-quart saucepan. Pour over tea bags and mint in 2-quart glass measuring cup or heatproof pitcher. Let steep 5 to 10 minutes.
Strain tea mixture. Stir in sugar. Serve tea over ice. Add more sugar if desired.
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.
