Pear Infused Iced Tea

Call me a dork diva, but I really, really like fruit cocktail. LOVE IT. I love it so much I’ve been buying it and hoarding it and eating it for dessert.

The motivation for this wonderfully refreshing beverage.
What does this have to do with this post? Well, I seem to have inherited the soul of a mother of 13 during the Great Depression. My mind is always chewing on how not to waste. How to use EVERYTHING to the last drop, crumb or morsel.

That’s how this tea was born.

I feel bad calling this a recipe as it’s so darn simple yet REFRESHING. I don’t have a photo because I am packing up my house and my good glasses are all packed up! Lo Siento!

Nik’s Pear Infused Iced Tea

Ingredients

  • Juice from 2 cans of no-sugar added fruit cocktail in pear juice (or 2 cups NSA pear juice if you can find it)
  • 2 sleeves of Iced Tea with Lemon Drink mix (extra points if you get the decaf version…btw “sleeves” = the drink mix you use to make 2 quarts in a pitcher)
  • 4 quarts of water (I make a big thing of this as the divas will drain me dry!)

Optional: If you’re an iced tea purist, by all means make some brewed tea using your favorite recipe (sweet vs. unsweetened). I think this would go nicely with a green tea personally.
Directions:

Pour juice into your pitcher. Add drink mix and water. Stir. Enjoy.

As the weather gets warmer, I look for various ways to jazz up my drinks. Hydration is important. So drink up!
