A hot summer day is the best time to whip up a refreshing pitcher of Dog Days Iced Tea.
What are Dog Days? We’re glad you asked! The Dog Days of summer are traditionally the 40 days beginning July 3 and ending August 11. To learn more, check out our Dog Days of Summer page. In the meantime, sit back and relax with this quintessential summer beverage.
Brew a strong tea in about 10 cups water. While still hot, add sugar and about a dozen mint leaves. Let cool.
Remove tea bags and mint; then add orange juice, fruit slices, and ice.
Serve over more ice, garnish with fresh mint sprigs, and add a fruit slice or two to each glass.
