Most of you may not know this, but a lot of my childhood was spent growing up in the south. Texas and South Carolina are both states I have called home, and we spent many summers on my grandma's farm in Tennessee. I've long since lost my accent, but sometimes when I am angry or really excited, that southern twang comes back, giving me a reminder of my days spent living the good southern life. Anyone who is anyone from the south will tell you that sweet tea is a staple in southern cuisine, and sadly it's just not something you really get here in the north. A few years back I started cutting cane sugar from my diet, and now drink unsweetened tea all day long. My mom won't touch my tea, as she is a firm believer that tea should be sweetened, even if it doesn't turn out like a good pitcher of the tea we had down south. When I found this Honey Lemon Ice Tea on Golden Blossom Honey, I thought it would be a good compromise.
Sweetened with honey and frozen lemonade, it has a sweet, tangy taste. Best of all, mom approves!
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1/2 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 cup frozen canned lemonade concentrate
2 quarts cold water
lemon slices and mint leaves, if desired
