Fourth of July is upon us and no-doubt you are getting ready for the big celebration by firing up the grill, baking pies and getting your backyard prepped for a ton of fun. In celebration of Independence Day, I wanted to share a family friendly recipe.
Instead of the usual 4th of July recipe, here is a sweet idea (for adults only!) that is sure to get your guests oohing and ahhing.
Raspberry Iced Tea Punch:
2 nectarines, pitted and sliced
1 pint fresh raspberries
1 lemon, sliced
20 fresh mint leaves, plus more for garnish
3 cups tea, freshly brewed, sweetened to taste and chilled
1 bottle sparkling white wine
Fill a large pitcher with the nectarines, raspberries, lemon and mint. Then add your tea and let sit for about 5 minutes to infuse. Once you're ready to serve add the sparkling white wine. Pour in glass with ice. Garnish with mint.
