Description

Fresh strawberries, mint sprigs, sugar and carbonated water are all you need to put together a pitcher of this summer favorite. Strawberry mint iced tea will keep you refreshed all summer!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cups hulled and roughly chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 8 peppermint sprigs
  • 6 cups chilled sparkling water
  • 6 fresh whole strawberries with tops

Instructions

  1. Place strawberries and sugar in a small saucepan; smash or muddle using a bar muddler or wooden spoon. Cook mixture over low heat for about 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sugar melts.
  2. Put each peppermint sprig in the palm of your hand, and give it a good slap to bring out the natural peppermint oil. Stir peppermint sprigs into strawberry mixture; remove from heat. Let to cool to room temperature, about 15 minutes.
  3. Remove and discard peppermint sprigs from strawberry puree. Blend the mixture in a blender and then pour through a fine mesh strainer into a half-gallon pitcher. Stir in sparkling water.
