Summer is here! And I’m so excited to partner with Teavana to celebrate Summer Fri-YAYs with their new cocktail teas. These teas are the perfect way to make everyday summer occasions fabulous, fun and tasty! Today and next Friday, I’ll be sharing two yummy and refreshing tea mocktails you can enjoy all summer long. First up, a Strawberry Daiquiri Iced Tea with Frozen Strawberries! Strawberry Daiquiri is the newest addition to Teavana’s line of summer cocktail teas. The blend has notes of sweet strawberry, smooth vanilla and rose petals. I wanted to keep this cocktail tea simple so I stuck to the iced tea recipe, but used frozen strawberries in addition to ice, in our glasses. Not only does it look pretty but it helps to not water down your tea!
Here are the simple steps to create your cocktail tea:
Step 1: Add 2x amount of tea used for hot tea into your Teavana Perfectea Maker (we’re making a quick concentrate to dilute over ice!)
Step 2: Add hot water
Step 3: Steep for 5 minutes
Step 4: Fill your glasses with a mix of frozen strawberries & ice
Step 5: Pour tea over ice/strawberries
Step 6: Garnish with lemon wheels and enjoy!
That’s it. Six, simple steps and you have a delicious Strawberry Daiquiri Iced Tea with Frozen Strawberries! Check back next Fri-YAY for my Piña Colada Frozen Cocktail Tea!. To continue the Summer Fri-YAY celebration, stop by a Teavana store every Friday from now through August 11th from 3-7 pm to buy one Teavana Cocktail Iced Tea and get one free to share with a friend.
