Strawberry Basil Iced Tea With Maple Syrup

Filed in: Recipes

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!

Iced Tea with Maple Syrup? Why Not!

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.
