Peach-Mint Iced Tea
1 cup packed fresh mint leaves
1.5 L water
2 family-sized tea bags
1 can (14oz.) Del Monte® Lite Sliced Peaches, not drained
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
½ cup sugar
Additional mint leaves, optional
- Using a wooden spoon, crush mint in a large glass pitcher. Add water and tea bags; cover and let stand in the sun at least 4 hours.
- Meanwhile, combine peaches, lemon juice and sugar in a blender and puree until smooth. Refrigerate until needed.
- Remove and discard mint from tea. Stir in peach mixture. Pour over ice and serve with fresh sprigs of mint, if desired.
NOTE: Tea can be prepared with boiling water instead of in the sun. Boil water and pour over tea bags and mint, let steep 10 minutes; strain.
