Strawberry-Apricot Iced Tea – The Sunset Drink

Strawberry-Apricot Iced Tea – The Sunset Drink

For all those ‘aesthetic drink’ lovers out there, I present you with this masterpiece: the strawberry-apricot ice tea – or as I like to call it, The Sunset Drink. I invented this drink completely by chance to be honest. I’ve seen strawberry and peach ice tea before but never heard of strawberries & apricots used together. So for this reason I’m actually surprised that it tasted this good.

One day I saw strawberry jam in my fridge and decided to make ice tea with it using green tea (which also tastes really good btw). However, I ran out of green tea, and decided to try it with apricot tea instead and oh boy was it good. The entire family loved it. and it’s so easy to make too! So, here you all go, the recipe:

  • 3-4 tbsp. Strawberry jam
  • 1 apricot tea bag
  • 1 cup of water
  • Lots of ice

Making this is very simple:

Step 1. Boil water and pour it in a separate cup to make the tea. Add the apricot tea bag into the water. Put the cup in the refrigerator to cool down.

Step 2. Add 3-4 tbsp. of strawberry jam into another cup. The amount of jam you use in completely up to preference. If you like it sweeter, add more. If you don’t like sugar much, add less. I use homemade strawberry jam, but feel free to use store bought jam as well. Anything will work just fine.

 Step 3. Once the tea has cooled down and became cold enough, add ice to the cup with strawberry jam, and pour the tea into the cup.

And voila! You’re done. Don’t forget to take pictures of the drink before stirring to capture the sunset colors you’ll end up with! After that stir and take a sip and I promise you, you won’t be disappointed 🙂
