I love iced tea and it is even more refreshing with a touch of fresh basil! I recently received a bottle of Pure Leaf Real Brewed Iced Tea with Lemon. What I love about Pure Leaf Tea is that it is all natural, fresh brewed from real tea leaves and isn’t full of chemicals I can’t pronounce! Though I love Pure Leaf Tea on its own, I decided to get a little creative and create a recipe or two with it.
First, I added half the bottle to my Vitamix with 1/2 cup of ice and 3 basil leaves. I pulsed it until frothy. I waited for the foam to rise to the top of the mixture, then poured it into a glass and spooned some of the remaining foam on top and garnished with more fresh basil. Today is a surprising 100 degrees and this was frosty and refreshing. The lemon and basil are a perfect blend of flavors for the tea! The kiddos really enjoyed it.
For the grown ups, I used the remaining half bottle of iced tea with 3/4 cup of ice, 6-8 slices of frozen peaches, 4 basil leaves and 2 shots of Citrus Vodka. I blended them in my Vitamix for just under a minute and poured. Garnish with additional basil leaves, if desired. This cocktail is DELISH!
