Tazo Passion Tea

Lemonade

Ice

Sweetener of your choice

Directions: 

Brew the passion tea however you choose (microwave, stove, sun tea). While the tea is still warm, pour in 2 tablespoons of sweetener. Then pour the tea and lemonade in a glass with ice. At Starbucks, they have a ration of 1/3 tea, 2/3 lemonade. I personally do half and half because the taste of lemonade is much stronger than the tea.

2 Medium sized lemons

1 cup Blue Raspberry syrup

1 cup water

1/2 cup sugar

2-3 cups of ice

Directions:

Peel the skin away from the lemons and remove some of the bigger seeds. All you need to do after that is put all the ingredients and the peeled lemons in a blender and mix! Then enjoy!

Ingredients:

1 cup coffee or K-cup

Ice cubes

Milk or cream (optional)

1 cup water

1 cup sugar

1 tsp vanilla

Directions: 

Prepare the vanilla syrup- bring sugar and water to a boil until the sugar has dissolved and add the vanilla and let it cool. (This syrup can be stored in the fridge for about 2 weeks if kept covered.) You won’t use all of this in the coffee, only a little bit each time.

Prepare you coffee how you like it with the milk/cream and then pour it over a cup of ice. Then add your vanilla syrup to how you like it. Then your complete! Enjoy!
