Very Berry Iced Tea.

My husband and I are always entertaining and a lot of the time guests unexpectedly visit and I need quick fixes to impress them.

I tried this recipe and after a few adjustments I finally came up with a sweet summer drink that will have all your guests impressed and refreshed!


  • 5 berry tea bags
  • 1 litre water
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 litre sprite
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries


  1. pour water into a pot and boil the tea bags for about 10  mins
  2. remove the tea bags and add the sugar. mix until dissolved then allow the mixture to cool
  3. pour the mixture into a tray then add the berries, mix and place in the freezer.
  4. after 20 mins , remove the mixture and scrape with a fork. it will form a texture similar to a granita.
  5. place it in the freezer for another 10 mins
  6. when you ready to serve, scoop the shards of iced tea into a jug and then add the sprite, top with fresh mint and extra berries if you like.

it takes a bit of time , but you can prepare the iced tea in advance and keep it in the freezer until you need it. I love this for parties and BBQs.
