Sweetened Passion Tea Lemonade {Copycat Starbucks Recipe}

My favorite spring/summer drink is Starbucks passion tea lemonade (sweetened, of course). I LOVE that stuff. It's so great. I'm usually a drive through kind of gal, but once I went in and watched them assemble my drink. It has to be one of the easiest things the baristas make because it's just three ingredients: Lemonade, passion tea and if you want it sweetened, simple syrup.

I decided to make my own at home, but instead of making the simple syrup (equal parts water and sugar, boiled until the sugar dissolves and then cooled) I just used sugar and dissolved it in the hot tea.

And it was FABULOUS.

You must make this at home! Your wallet will thank you!

{Copycat Starbucks} Passion Tea Lemonade

2 Tazo Passion Tea bags
Lemonade (I use Simply Lemonade)
1 cup white sugar

Fill a small pot with 5 cups of water. Bring water to a boil. Turn heat off, add teabags, cover with lid. Let steep for 10 minutes.

While the tea is steeping, add 1 cup sugar to a large pitcher. Once tea is steeped, pour into pitcher and stir to dissolve sugar. Add lemonade until the pitcher is full. Stir to combine, store in the fridge.
