Welcome Back To Thirsty Thursdays!!

Today I am featuring a drink from Down Home with The Neely's :
Gina' Raspberry Iced Tea ~
Tea:
10 bags Raspberry Zinger tea
4 bags Hibiscus tea
12 cups water
Sugar Syrup:
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 pint raspberries
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
fresh mint sprigs for garnish
Place the tea bags in a large heat proof picther. Boil the water, pour it over the tea bags and allow it to steep for at least 10 minutes. Remove the tea bags, an allow the tea to cool.
Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan, and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer briefly, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and add the raspberries, then allow the mixture to come to room temperature.
Combine the tea, raspberry syrup, and fresh lime juice in a large pictcher.
To serve, pour the sweet tea into large glasses filled with ice and garnish with sprigs of mint .
Enjoy Lovelies!!!
