Promised Lemonade Tea Recipe

I made a pitcher of this yummy lemonade tea a couple of days ago, and it reminded me that I promised to post the recipe. Here she is:

- 3 Cups of water
- 2 Family-size tea bags
- 1 package of fresh mint leaves (actually haven't used this ingredient. I always forget.)
- 4 Cups of cold water
- 1 (6-oz) can of frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed

1. Bring 3 cups water to a boil in a 2-qt. saucepan. Remove from heat, add tea bags, and stir in fresh mint. Cover and steep 10 minutes.

2. Remove and discard tea bags and mint. Stir in sugar until dissolved.

3. Pour tea into a 3-qt. container, and stir in 4 cups cold water and lemonade concentrate. Serve over ice. Garnish with fresh citrus slices, if desired.

Haven't tried these versions, case you're interested ;)...

OH, by the way, I am on my third Harry Potter book and just itchin' to go to the Universal Studios Harry Potter theme park...I am such a dork. My whole family (3 yo almost included) rolled their eyes when I suggested it. Oh, well.
