watermelon iced tea
 
This is less of a recipe and more of a guide - add or subtract as you will, but most of all, try stay cool!
Ingredients
  • 3 tea bags
  • 2 sprigs of mint
  • 1 watermelon
  • a dash of sparkling water
How to make it
  1. Grab a jug and fill it with cold water. Add three tea bags (I use a mix of black tea and earl grey) to the water and swirl it around.
  2. Thwack the mint against a benchtop and then toss that into the jug as well before popping it in the fridge for a couple of hours until it's really nice and cold. The tea will infuse into the water slowly, so it won't be bitter at all. Lovely!
  3. Cut up the watermelon, remove any seeds and the rind, then put the whole lot into a blender and whizz it up until it's a pretty pink watermelon juice. Pop that in the fridge as well until it is icy cold.
  4. To serve, half fill a glass with watermelon juice and top up with tea (and a splash of sparkling water if you like!)
