Early Spring? Or Just Spr-inter...

Apple Ice Tea

Today in Sydney it was unseasonably warm at 23/ 24 C and I think it took us all a little aback, from the cool windy weather we had over the weekend, today I scrambled to pull out something cooler to wear, and to drink - the water went down fast! But I also came across this delicious recipe on Country Living for Apple Ice Tea I though I'd share with you. I love any Ice Tea [especially Long Island ones!] at the best of times - but I thought this was a nice twist. Ice Tea is definitely a great 'Palatial' drink to serve your guests! Here's the recipe below if you'd like to give it try... Enjoy x
