ginger almond tea

• • • •

This last Saturday some ladies and I got together and hosted a baby shower for one of my dear friends. She is expecting a little boy next month and we can’t wait to meet him. At the party we served cake, mints, nuts and I made ginger almond tea. I got the recipe from Susie, a Boise City local, and it was a complete hit. Next time I serve this I might add champagne or wine to the mixture! (Thanks for the idea, Kassidi)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 5 tea bags
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 4 cups water
  • 3/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 liter ginger ale – chilled

Directions

  • In a large bowl pour boiling water over tea bags.
  • Cover and steep for 5 minutes.
  • Remove tea bags, stir in sugar, water, lemon juice, vanilla and almond extract.
  • Chill in refrigerator.
  • Add ginger ale right before serving. Makes 3 quarts
