Tailgates and Barbeques are the highlights of the summer months for our family and when we have a get-together, we do not take the easy way out – we go above and beyond. Usually, we have many snack options, the main course such as burgers, or steaks, and then plenty of drink options. This year, we really wanted to get creative, so we decided to play in the kitchen, making new summer recipes. We came up with a rocking Blueberry Mint Tea made with Milo’s Tea and wanted to share it with all of you.
This Blueberry Mint Tea is insanely good – it is refreshing, light, and so good. I could honestly drink it all day. We tried the recipe out on a few people and everyone had such positive reactions. Another great thing about this Blueberry Mint Tea Recipe is the fact that it is so easy to make. It doesn’t require a ton of ingredients and the ingredients that I do use are pretty inexpensive. The most time-consuming part of the recipe is just letting the simple syrup cool (and you could even make this a day, or a few days before your event). I’m telling you – it is super easy to make and all of your guests will be so impressed! We loved taking this drink out on the patio, spending time together, and cooling off with the drink in our hands.
The ingredients I used are blueberries, mint, water, a lemon, sugar, and Milo’s Tea. You probably know by now, but we love Milo’s Tea. We have used them in our past recipes (like these teas) and will never use another tea because Milo’s Tea is fresh brewed, features natural ingredients, and includes no preservatives or added acids. It’s available in sweetened with pure cane sugar (my favorite!), no calorie, and unsweet options. It truly is the beverage for summer meal entertaining and it is so perfect for get-togethers. This family-owned, certified woman-owned business is located in Bessemer, Alabama. Milo’s was originally founded as a restaurant in 1946 by Milo and Bea Carlton. Milo’s philosophy was to use high-quality, fresh, and natural ingredients, and this vision is still what guides the company today. Milo’s Tea fresh brews all of their teas, use only natural ingredients, and never use colors, acids, additives, or preservatives. This award-winning tea really is the best of the best. I wouldn’t use anything other than Milo’s Tea! I found Milo’s at my local Kroger in the refrigerated juice section but they are available in lots of retailers.
