SUN-BREWED ICED TEA
Dudes it is hot as BALLS here in Athens and the only solution is to pound glasses of iced tea all day long. I get a tiny bit of satisfaction knowing that I am using the sun’s power against it (ha!) to make my cold delicious beverage. All you have to do is fill a big container with water—glass is better than plastic cause plastic can leach weird chemicals into your tea—add a few tea bags, and leave it out in the sun for a few hours. If you like it sweet, you can make simple syrup by boiling 2 parts sugar to 1 part water until the sugar is completely dissolved. If you add herbs like mint to the syrup while you’re boiling it you can make different flavors! Simple syrup is better than just pouring in sugar because it dissolves more evenly in the tea. Keep a giant jug of tea in the fridge and you MIGHT survive summer in Georgia.
