did you know that today is national iced tea day? what a terrific excuse to sit on a patch of grass in the park with your favorite book and a cool glass of your favorite iced tea! for yours truly, lately i can’t get enough of my favorite pineapple iced tea from gobo. it is perfectly sweetened by the pineapple puree and it is pure heaven.
and when i’m not in nyc, i live by this little recipe to get me through the warm summer days. sometimes i’ll add a sprig of basil or a little ginger, too. 🙂
happy iced tea day, everyone!
