1 quart brewed tea
2 limes, sliced into rings
12 sprigs of mint
4 tbs. turbinado sugar, or more to taste
Tonic water or seltzer, optional
- Fill 4 highball or old-fashioned glasses with ice. Pour 1 cup tea into each glass. Divide lime slices and mint among the glasses, squeezing the limes to extract juice and crushing the herb roughly with your fingers.
- Add a tbs. of sugar to each glass. Stir briskly until sugar dissolves. Top with a little tonic or seltzer, if you like, and stir again. Taste and adjust sugar, if necessary. You can also add more lime or mint to taste.
