What’s your favorite summer drink?
I know, I’m getting way ahead of myself here with this Raspberry Sweet Tea recipe. One warm day in New Jersey and I’m ready to break out my summer drink recipes! Over the weekend, it was just about 70ºF so I got a little carried away. I decided some homemade raspberry sweet tea was in order to celebrate. Let’s just store this one in the archives for warmer days though, since we’re back to reality with 40ºF, rainy weather. I love making delicious drinks to serve to my family and friends on warm days. This raspberry sweet tea is perfect and so delicious.
How to make raspberry simple syrup:
To make this recipe, raspberries and sugar get muddled and simmered on the stove with some water creating the most beautifully luscious raspberry simple syrup ever. You’ll boil some water and brew up a few tea bags that this syrup will get stirred into after it’s strained. It’s really that simple, friends! Perfectly homemade raspberry sweet tea to enjoy on a nice warm day.
