Sweet Iced Tea with Mint

One of summer’s standard beverages is sweet iced tea, especially in the South.  My grandmother used to add mint to her ice tea – it’s so refreshing!

Brew 12 cups of water and 6 individual (not family size) tea bags.  To the hot tea add 6-8 mint leaves. Stir and let it sit about 5 minutes.  Then add 1-1/4 cup sugar, juice of 1 orange and 1-1/2 tablespoon lemon juice or 1/2 lemon.  This is especially good if you chill your glasses.  Remove the mint leaves before you refrigerate.
