Recipe: Twin Oaks Almond Iced Tea

Whether or not it is still technically spring, when the thermometer registers above 89 degrees it is time for drinks with crushed ice, like this almond iced tea.

    • 2 Lipton's Cold Brew Tea Bags (pitcher-size)
    • 1½ quarts cold water
    • 1 cup sugar
    • ½ cup water
    • 1 ounce almond extract

With the tea bags and water, brew a batch of strong tea.

In small sauce pan, cook the sugar and water over medium hear until sugar is dissolved, and then add to the brewed tea.

Serve over crushed ice. Always fill the glass to the top with crushed ice before adding your beverage.
