Enjoy Summer with Half and Half Iced Tea

Summer is finally here and it’s important to fit in some relaxation time. During this time of year, we get to enjoy extra time with our family and friends whether it be taking some time off for a staycation, traveling to a new country, enjoying celebrations, or simply having people over for a meal outside.

Unwinding during a summer holiday increases your well-being. It gives you a much-needed boost of energy and the laughs you deserve. It is vital to take pride in what you do and to have a strong work ethic. Equally important, that sometimes could be hard to remember, is knowing when to unplug. Needing to find time to relax helps your mental health and can make a difference in your productivity when returning to back to work.

We challenge you to enjoy any time you have off from work this summer to refresh and recharge, even it be over the weekend.

A popular nonalcoholic drink of choice made while enjoying some fresh air outside is lemonade and tea. Half and half iced tea is the perfect blend of both worlds that adults and children can enjoy. It often brings me back to childhood memories and times before life challenges got in the way. It's the drink of choice for me when I need an escape and a beverage that brings sunshine vibes.

Starbucks Peach Green Tea Lemonade

Have you had the Starbucks iced peach green tea lemonade? Last summer the Starbucks drink was out of stock due to a peach juice shortage used for their lemonade. The loss of their peach mixture had the internet exploding with questions asking when to expect it back in stock.

Well, here’s a recipe to make not just for a single cup mix but to enjoy with your entire family in a pitcher or during the whole week. It is one of our favorites, is so easy to make, and best of all, it is a true hit to enjoy during the day.

Iced Tea Ingredients

Iced Green Tea Recipe

  1. Boil hot water. Allow the freshly boiled water to cool for about a minute.
  2. Pour hot water into pitcher and steep tea bags for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Allow tea to cool while making lemonade.

Lemonade Ingredients

  • 15.25 oz Can of peaches, chunks of sliced
  • 3.5 Cups of cold water
  • ¾ Cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • ½- ¾ Cup of agave depending on sweetness preference

Peach Lemonade Recipe

  1. For our fresh peach lemonade, first add the canned peaches into a blender and make sure to include the peach juice. While some recipes recommend frozen peaches, canned peaches help make the recipe quicker, and the juice helps sweeten the drink so not much more sweetener is needed afterward.
  2. After blending the peaches, pour it into the iced green tea pitcher along with 3.5 cups of water. Squeeze the fresh lemon juice in, being mindful of seeds.
  3. Lastly, add 1/2-3/4 cups of agave, depending on how sweet you'd like your lemonade, and to remove the tartness of the fresh lemon taste.
  4. Allow pitcher to cool for about 30 minutes in the refrigerator or serve soon after with glasses of ice.
