Who doesn’t love a nice cold bottle of Snapple on a hot day? Maybe it is the “Best Stuff on Earth”, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make it better (and cheaper) at home. And if you prefer diet, just replace the sugar with 12 packets of artificial sweetener.
8 cups water
2 Lipton tea bags
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup lemon juice
Add the water to a large saucepan and place over high heat. Once the water is boiling, add the tea bags and turn off the heat. Cover the saucepan and let stand for about 2 hours.
After 2 hours, discard the teabags. Add the sugar to a 2-quart pitcher. Pour the tea into the pitcher. Add the lemon juice and give it a good stir. Refrigerate until cold or serve over ice.
Makes 2 quarts.
