A glass of iced tea with maple syrup is a great hot summer day drink! This one is made special with strawberry and basil. So refreshing!
I love to have a nice drink on my balcony at the end of the day. A glass of wine or beer are the perfect ‘end of the day summer drinks’, but I don’t like having an alcoholic drink every night and honestly, a glass of water just doesn’t give that romantic summer night feeling that I’m searching for. The perfect solution? Iced tea.
I love experimenting with drinks, and this one is my latest. Strawberry basil iced tea with maple syrup. The maple syrup gives it a perfect sweetness and the strawberry and basil gives it a fresh fruity taste.
An early summer iced tea made using strawberries and maple syrup as the sweetener.
Steep 3 tea bags in boiled water until the tea is steeped to your preference.
In a sauce pan combine 3/4 cup water and 3/4 cup maple syrup with your strawberries and basil
Bring mixture to a boil and let boil for about 15 minutes until the strawberries are soft
Pour the strawberry mixture through a strainer to remove the chunks and add the liquid mixture into the steeped tea and stir
Allow the mixture to cool and then place in the fridge to chill. Serve with ice and enjoy!
