Yummy! This is my new favorite drink from Starbucks after I discovered how many calories are in the Mocha Frappacino. I won’t spoil it for you! I really surprised myself when I liked this drink. I’m really not a tea fan and definitely not an iced tea fan. I was up at my mom’s house a few weeks ago and found a stash of Tazo Tea. I took a few bags of the Passion Fruit Tea and figured I would put it to good use sooner or later. Well, today was the day! I was also really excited to use my cocktail shaker too. We won’t talk about how long we’ve had it and how many times we’ve used it!
This recipe really didn’t take too long to find at all. The gal who posted the recipe on the site claims to be a Starbuck’s barista. After making this drink, I believe her!!
Passion Fruit Iced Tea Lemonade (ala Starbucks)
I found the recipe here.
Here is what I did:
2 cups strong Passion Tazo Tea
2 cups lemonade (I used pink lemonade)
1/2 cup simple syrup
Let 2 cups of tea steep for about 4 or 5 minutes (you want it strong)
Allow tea to cool to room temperature or place in refrigerator to cool it off faster
Pour 1 cup tea, 1 cup lemonade, 1 cup ice and 4 TB simple syrup (3 TB for tall, 4 TB for grande, 6 for venti) into cocktail shaker. Shake well.
Strain into glass with ice.
