Time to quench your thirst with this super easy Raspberry Mango Iced Tea!  It really hits the spot when you are looking for a tasty beverage during these summer months.

While I was making this, all I could picture was me sitting on an old fashioned porch in the south, surrounded by hanging ferns with a slight breeze.  Doesn't that sound like heavenly?  Instead I'm in the midwest on a deck looking out over some pine trees!  Either way, this iced tea recipe is sure to have you relaxing in no time.

This past weekend I hosted a bridal shower for my friend that has a son getting married at the end of June.  I had this vision of an intimidate ladies luncheon, no games, good eats, tasty drinks and a themed party (because if you know me, I loved themed parties, gifts, etc.)  I decided on a "garden glam" sort of idea - the dining room table was set with my good crystal, silverware and fancy dishes.  On the table (see picture under recipe) at each place setting I had a small galvanized bucket with a name "marker", a set of garden gloves and some seeds that I re-covered with a saying.  I had also found at Michaels some small metal gardening tools that I used as napkins rings.  The other items I found at the dollar store.  Easy!

On my kitchen table, I set out drinks (including this tea) and decorated small milk bottles with some cute butterflies and flowers that again I found at the dollar store (they were 4 for a $1).  I used galvanized serving trays and I have a three tiered one that I first used for some appetizers then later put out my mini desserts on.  While I had hoped to take more pictures, the day got away from me so I only have a few to share.

I had a great time planning the menu.  We started out with Peach Bellinis, this raspberry mango iced tea, a display of marinated olives, caprese skewers and small glasses that held veggies and dip.  Our first course was Carrot Ginger Soup, then we moved onto a Chopped Spinach Salad with a honey vinaigrette dressing.  The main dish was a Ham and Leek Quiche with fresh fruit.  I had a trio of desserts - Lemon Supreme Cups, Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cups and Angel Food Cake with Fresh Strawberries. 

Everyone had a good time and the bride got some wonderful gifts!  And I don't think anyone went away hungry...hehe!

I hope you enjoy this raspberry mango iced tea recipe as much as we do!
