Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds fresh strawberries or two 16-ounce packages frozen unsweetened whole strawberries
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 lemons
  • 3 tablespoons snipped fresh rosemary (optional)
  • Ice cubes
  • 1 recipe Iced Tea or one 1-liter bottle club soda, chilled
  • Fresh strawberries (optional)

Method:

In a large saucepan combine fresh or frozen strawberries, brown sugar, and water. Cook and stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves.

Using a vegetable peeler, remove strips of peel from lemons; juice the lemons (should have 1/2 cup). Add strips of lemon peel, lemon juice, and rosemary to mixture in saucepan. Bring mixture just to boiling, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Cover; cool to room temperature.

Press mixture through a fine mesh sieve; discard solids (you should have about 1 quart syrup). To serve, fill glass with ice. To each glass add 1/2 cup Iced Tea and syrup to taste (about 1/2 cup). Garnish with fresh strawberries.

    I would like to start making some sun brewed tea as the weather is getting warmer, but I only like green tea. I love my green tea with honey, so I understand I can put honey in the jar aswell…so what’s a good recipe? thanks.

    Also, which drink do you recommend for your first time and tips on how to order? Which is the cheapest and still tasty (for ex: I’ve had black iced tea with 1/4 strawberry one time and it was like $2.45)

    i really hate coffee. that is completely off limits. i LOVE tea, though. all types of teas are my favorite. i also like sweetened drinks. i usually get a sweetened passion fruit iced tea lemonade but i am so bored of that. thanks!
