super easy.

everything was purchased at walmart and i definitely spent under $10 for all ingredients.
these are all the ingredients you need!
-passion tea
-lemonade
-raspberry syrup (this is an optional sweetner)

to make the tea i boiled 4 cups of water and added 8 bags of tazo passion tea.
so that’s 2 bags of tea per every 1 cup of water.
let the tea sit in the fridge overnight so it will be iced when you’re ready to make your drink.

first, i took my 8oz reusable plastic copco (bought at bed bath & beyond) cup and filled it with ice.

then i added my iced tea until the cup was about 3/4 of the way full.

next, i added the lemonade.
this lightens up the drink and gives it a sweet color!

finally, i added a splash of torani’s raspberry syrup.
this helps sweeten up the drink.
if you’re not a raspberry fan, you could add sugar instead.

ta da!
so delicious!

while i’m not totally sure about the measurements i’d say i added:
5oz iced passion tea
3oz lemonade
and just a splash of raspberry syrup.
if you make it, let me know!
did you do anything different? how did it turn out?

i’m off to go soak up the sun and sip on my tasty drink!

lately on instagram...
backyard bonfires with my boys ❤ if you know me, one of the best words to describe me is "busy". i spend my days constantly running from one activity to the next. even though i love all that i'm doing, it's still easy to feel burnt out. especially with the holiday season so quickly approaching, i'm making it my intention so slow down. take a few deep breaths. sit and listen to the rain. treat myself to a coffee at my favorite cafe. get to a yoga class. make time to be still. 
you can't pour from an empty cup. how will you fill yours today? all i want to do is love on him but all he wants to do is hunt down the squirrels 😀
