A staple in any Southern household, Cuisinart's Sweet Tea is a perfect companion on a hot summer day.
Iced Southern Sweet Tea
INGREDIENTS
3 bags black tea (or three servings loose tea)
water
1 cup ice cubes
1/4 cup simple syrup*
Instructions
1. Put tea in a small bowl. Put at least 10 ounces of water into your kettle and select the Black setting. Pour 8 ounces of the hot water over tea and let steep 3 to 5 minutes. Strain. Refrigerate tea until chilled.
2. Put the ice in a tall glass. Pour the chilled, steeped tea over the ice and stir in the simple syrup. Adjust sweetness to taste.
*While you can purchase simple syrup at gourmet shops, it is easy to make at home (and less expensive). To prepare, add equal parts granulated sugar and water to a small saucepan set over medium-low heat. Let mixture heat until all of the sugar has dissolved. Cool mixture to room temperature.
