Mint-Ginger Iced Tea
This tea soothes the tummy and has other health benefits -- this colorful lemonade-stand upgrade is sure to hit the spot.
6 ounces fresh ginger, peeled and smashed with a meat mallet
4 bags mint tea
8 cups boiling water
2 tablespoons honey
1. In a large pot, combine ginger, mint tea, and boiling water. Let steep 8 minutes. Pour through a fine-mesh sieve into a large container; discard solids. Stir in honey. Let cool to room temperature, about 2 hours. Serve over ice with mint sprigs.
Yield: makes about 8 cups
This drink can be refrigerated for up to 3 days -- add garnish and ice before serving. Try using canning jars in place of pitchers or glasses for a casual party.
