How to Make It

Pour the passion fruit iced tea into glasses filled with ice cubes.

Tips and Tricks

  • You can make the tea ahead and chill it in a pitcher in the refrigerator. Add the passion fruit before serving so it’s nice and fresh.
  • And about the passion fruit – if you can’t find fresh fruit, look for passion fruit puree or pulp. Goya makes it (I’m sure there are other brands, too) – just thaw it first in the refrigerator.
  • Instead of granulated sugar, you can use simple syrup, which is just equal parts sugar and water simmered until the sugar melts. Or you can try flavored syrups like vanilla or sweeten your drink with honey. You can also adjust the sweetness – just add more sugar or reduce it to your taste.
  • If you’re really feeling fancy, garnish your iced tea drinks with fresh mint leaves and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.

Ready to sip on this iced fruit tea? It’s such an easy recipe and a great way to put a spin on a plain old glass of iced tea. Enjoy!

Happy drink-making,
