For this week's photo prompt I wanted to focus on summer as it begins to come to a close. The prompt is to capture something that has become.....
A New Summer Tradition
(These photos also happen to be my day 10 *something I made* photos for the 30 day photo challenge I'm doing this month over on my personal blog, Blume & Grow. Fun!)
I have never really been a big ice tea fan, but this summer I started mixing homemade ice tea with different things like lemonade or flavored sparkling water.....and it's stuck. I love it!!! I've tried quite a few different mixtures and here are some of my favorites:
- Tazo Rest (rose petals, valerian root and citrusy herbs) mixed with Simply Limeade (pictured above). This one tastes like you're drinking a flower.....it's floral and refreshing.
- Tazo Refresh (mint with a pinch of tarragon) mixed with Simply Raspberry Lemonade. Mint and raspberry's are so great together, and this is no exception!
- Celestial Seasonings Black Cherry Berry mixed with Simply Raspberry Lemonade. This ice tea is sweet and tart.....and so delicious.
If you're interested in the actual recipe I use, you can find it HERE on a guest post for My Creative Brightside. I use the same steps and ratios for each one, so all you have to do is replace the corresponding ingredients with ones of your choice. It's really easy, and a real treat to have at home or to throw into a travel mug for the road.
What's a new tradition that you've started this summer?
Have a wonderful day!
