Rosemary Lemon Iced Tea

We all know that during hot summer days hydration is key. While the little ol’ story of drinking plenty of water can be boring sometimes, every now and then I find myself craving some fresh, fruity and semi-sweet drinks. For this healthy version of an iced tea you will need two main ingredients as the name indicates. The preparation is as easy as pie! You might have concerns that rosemary is rather not common for anything sweet, but it gives just the right amount of flavor to this drink. Simply, give it a try! Also, this drink makes a great gift to bring along to a barbecue.

INGREDIENTS
A handful of rosemary leaves
The juice of one orange
The juice of one lemon
Peel of one organic lemon
Ginger
Approx. 50ml. honey
PREPARATION
Start by bringing one cup of water to boil together with the lemon peel and the ginger slices in a small saucepan. Next add the lemon and the orange juice and reduce the temperature. Now, add the rosemary and as much honey as you like and give it a good stir. Let it boil for about 10 minutes on a low flame to make sure that the herbs unfold their full flavor. Let the syrup cool down and then pour it through a strainer.
For the last step, you make some of your favorite tea and let it cool as well. For me, this means a handful of fresh mint. When you find yourself craving some refreshing and tasteful, yet not-too-sweet drink, you simply serve the tea with some of the infused syrup. Add some ice-cubes if you want, and there you go! For the unlikely case of left-overs, you can store the syrup in an airtight container or bottle.

Optionally, you can make this a great alcoholic cocktail, too. Just add some Gin or Vodka. 😉
Enjoy!
