Sunshine Iced Tea – A refreshing simple iced tea with a delicious dose of lemon and orange. Fresh brewed, serve with ice, sip and enjoy for a summer day.
Ahh. Sunshine Iced Tea. I love me a big ole glass of iced tea on a warm day. Refreshing. Sweet. Delicious.
Growing up my mom always had sweet tea around. She would change it around a bit here and there but it was always a staple in our house.
I now have some of my own sweet tea loving kids. I’ve lowered the sugar a bit over the years to keep the calories down but I still love it all the same.
This simple recipe includes lemons and oranges. I love the flavor the citrus adds to the tea.
I hope you give this recipe a try. It sure makes me happy weather it’s summer or I’m just dreaming of summer.
Til we meet and eat again,
