The Perfect Tea for parties!

I went to a bridesmaid luncheon once and they served this Raspberry Iced Tea with Quiche Lorraine and a spring mix green salad. It was all so light and refreshing. It was the perfect combination.

This drink is so yummy for for parties, cookouts, bridal showers and more. However, there is no need to wait for a special occasion to make this. I love to keep a pitcher of this in the fridge during the week. It’s so light and refreshing and not heavy like some drinks.

Raspberry Iced Tea is really pretty in a beverage dispensers. I like to put a few extra raspberries on top to float around. They just looks so pretty.

One tip is to freeze a few extra raspberries and put them in the dispenser. Not only does it look great but it serves as ice cubes.

I also have a glass pitcher that I use when I’m making this at home for us or just a simple get together.

How much sugar is in Raspberry Iced Tea?

There is one cup of sugar in this recipe of Raspberry Iced Tea. You can adjust the amount to suit your taste.

If you prefer a sweeter tea, add a little more. If you prefer less, just reduce the amount of sugar. It’s perfect for everyone.

We also love serving with a slice of lemon or a side of lemon juice.

How to store:

Raspberry Iced Tea is great stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. I like to keep it sealed in the pitcher to keep it fresh.
