Raspberry mango iced tea is the perfect cold drink for summer! This iced tea recipe uses fresh raspberries and mango, giving the iced tea a burst of refreshing fruit flavor.
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!
