How to prepare a delicious Raspberry Crusher?

RECIPE:

DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY: Easy

PREPARATION TIME: 10 mins

STEEPING AND COOLING TIME: 30 mins

FREEZING TIME: APPROX. 1 hour

SERVINGS: 8 (1 pitcher)

INGREDIENTS:

For the raspberry ice cubes:

2 cups organic raspberries

4 tablespoons lemon juice

3 tablespoons sugar

2 cups water

 

For the tea:

6 individual Red White and You teabags

8 cups of water

6 tablespoons of Sugar or honey (optional)

 

Special Equipment:

Ice cube trays

Directions:

  1. Place the raspberries, lemon juice and sugar in a large mixing bowl and roughly mash with a fork. It may seem wrong to mash all those gorgeous raspberries, but trust us, you will be glad you did!
  2. Add water to the raspberries and stir to combine.
  3. Carefully pour raspberry mixture into ice cube trays. (This is not the occasion for wearing your best white shirt!) Place the tray in the freezer and allow it to freeze solid.

Now, onto the tea–the iced tea, that is!

  1. Place the teabags in a heat proof bowl or pitcher and pour over 8 cups of boiling water.
  2. (optional): Stir in the sugar or honey to sweeten, if you like. Or, leave it out. Your tea is your business!
  3. Cool to room temperature, transfer to the serving pitcher, and place in the fridge to chill.
  4. To serve, remove the teabags from the pitcher and add them to the compost bins. Place a few raspberry ice cubes in a glass and pour over the iced tea. Garnish with a slice of lemon, if you fancy!
