Last year I went on the Sanford Food Tour, a town just north of Orlando. If you happen to be in the area, this is such a fun tour – there are biscuits and gravy, meatball lollipops, and apple strudel making. And don’t worry, there are plenty of great treats for gluten-free and veggie eaters too. One of our stops was at a place called Dreamy Cakes, a small confectionary shop where we ate lavender macaroons and drank mojito ices tea.
I loved the mojito tea, so incredibly refreshing on a hot Florida day. And now that we are deep into the summer, the weather across the country is hotter than ever. I have been in New York City for two weeks and I would swear it is twice as humid here as it is in Florida. I guess the difference is that I walk everywhere in New York, while in Florida we drive in an air conditioned car from one place to the next.
So I decided to expand on the mojito idea and add some super refreshing blackberries into the mix. So amazing. I think anything fruity is perfect in the summer, the kind of drink you take outside and sit on the front porch – if you can stand the heat that is. Or maybe just make this Blackberry Mojito Iced Tea and relax in the comfort of your air conditioned house.
On a side note, due to my anti-inflammatory diet, I have began using Splenda in place of white sugar. However, feel free to use whatever type of sugar you prefer.
