How do you make your iced tea?

Watermelon is one of our favorite summer fruits. Here’s a quick and easy iced tea recipe from IMPROV Kitchen that’s oh-so-good and super refreshing!
Watermelon Sweet Tea
2 c. cubed seedless watermelon
2 c. brewed iced tea
4 T. agave nectar
In a blender, combine ingredients and puree until combined. Pour mixture through a fine mesh sieve. Pour over ice, sip, enjoy!
Get creative! Morgan, the author of the IMPROV Kitchen blog has these great suggestions for variations of this recipe:
- Freeze the watermelon first to make this into a slushy.
- Try it with cantaloupe and a black or white tea.
- Use your sweetener of choice; honey, simple syrup (1 c. sugar + 1 c. water heated up until dissolved), artificial sweetener and super fine sugar will work too! Vary the level depending on how sweet you like your tea.
- Add some vodka or light rum for a sweet summertime cocktail.
