MINT TEA This is an excellent tea that can also be used as a punch. I got the recipe from a waiter at a reception in the Mississippi State Capitol in July 1991. The recipe that the waiter gave me was a photocopy of a handwritten recipe. I once made this recipe in a glass tea jar and stirred it with a big stainless steel spoon -- big mistake! I broke a small hole in the side of the jar and had sticky sweet tea pouring all over my kitchen floor, just as the guests were arriving. Now I make this recipe in a plastic pitcher. 6 cups cold water 5 regular size tea bags or 2 family size 6 sprigs fresh mint (I have used mint tea bags when I didn't have fresh mint -- not quite as good, but acceptable) 1 1/2 cups sugar 3/4 cup lemon juice 2 1/2 cups pineapple juice 1 quart ginger ale Bring the first three ingredients (water, tea bags, and mint) to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. Remove tea bags and mint. While warm add the sugar, lemon juice, and pineapple juice and stir. Just before serving, add the ginger ale. Serve over ice. Makes about a gallon.

MINT TEA

This is an excellent
tea that can also be used as a punch.
I got the recipe from a waiter at a reception in the
Mississippi State Capitol in July 1991. The recipe that the
waiter gave me was a photocopy of a handwritten recipe.

I once made this recipe in a glass
tea jar and stirred it with
a
big stainless steel spoon -- big mistake! I broke a small hole
in the side of the jar and had sticky
sweet tea pouring all over
my kitchen floor, just as the guests were arriving. Now I make
this recipe in a plastic pitcher.

6 cups cold water
5 regular size
tea bags or 2 family size
6 sprigs fresh
mint (I have used mint tea bags when I didn't have fresh mint
-- not quite as good, but acceptable)
1 1/2 cups
sugar
3/4 cup
lemon juice
2 1/2 cups
pineapple juice
1 quart
ginger ale

Bring the first three ingredients (water,
tea bags, and mint) to a boil and
boil for 5 minutes. Remove tea bags and mint. While warm add the sugar,
lemon juice, and pineapple juice and stir. Just before serving, add
the
ginger
ale.

Serve over
ice. Makes about a gallon.
