Notes: Too bad I made this in the dead of winter, it is so refreshing for the summertime! The orange and the green really combine well, and then turning it into a sweet tea was a nice touch! It is light, sweet, and super yummy. I drank this while wrapping the last of my christmas presents! You must try this when you need a cool down or are sitting on a porch swing enjoying a summer breeze. I think it would be ideal.
