I've mentioned my love for the Premium Binger Brew before but just to reiterate I LOVE it! It's one of those drinks for me that I can actually taste while I'm craving it. I've also mentioned before my love for Pinterest! A while back I stumbled across a post from Marla with Family Fresh Cooking about a delicious sounding iced tea.
That was actually my first experience with Reed's Ginger Brew and Tetley's Black and Green Tea and now I love them both. This drink was so good, I made it for some of my girlfriends one afternoon and it was a great hit. Here are the simple ingredients:
4 cups boiling Water 2 cups Frozen Blueberries + 1 cup Water 1 tablespoon pure Honey 16 ounces (1 bottle) Ginger Beer (alcohol free) Optional -Ginger Juice
I didn't leave myself enough time to make the adorable ice cubes but I will for sure make them next time. I think it adds to the display! To make Blueberry Ice Cubes ... add some frozen blueberries to ice cube makers. Add more to some & less to others for variety. Fill with water & freeze 4 hours to overnight.
To make Tea ... Bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Steep tea bags for 5 minutes. Gently squeeze bags, remove & discard.Let cool for a bit & transfer to fridge to chill.
To make Blueberry Juice ... in a saucepan bring blueberries to boil with 1 cup of water & honey. Mash berries against the side of pan to release juices. Place a fine mesh sieve over a heat safe bowl. Pour blueberry juice through the sieve. Again, mash the blueberries against the side of mesh to release juices. Discard mashed blueberries. Let cool a bit & transfer to fridge to chill.
In a large pitcher add the blueberry ice cubes, chilled tea & blueberry juice. Top with ginger beer. Add ginger juice to taste for a stronger, spicier ginger flavor.
Boiling my blueberries. The smell was heavenly!
And boiling my tea!
This was after most of the drink had gone!
