Sweet Tea Syrup

Sweet Tea Syrup

With the warmer weather finally making it’s way to our neck of the woods, I’ve found that sometimes I want something a little more than plain old water.  Don’t get me wrong, I drink tons of that daily, but sometimes you want a sweet treat, ya know?  One of my favorite spring and summer time drinks to enjoy is sweet tea.  And just because some people like theirs sweeter than others, I’ve got the perfect solution…sweet tea syrup!

Easiest recipe ever people!

Brew your iced tea according to package directions.  I love to use the Lipton Cold Brew tea, and brew enough for a big pitcher.

To make the sweet tea syrup, boil 4 cups of water with 1-2 cups of white sugar {depending on how sweet you want it to be}.  After the mixture boils for about 2 minutes, cool completely in the refrigerator.  I like to keep ours in a tall mason jar.

Gardening Made Easy with Miracle-Gro Gro-Ables

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Gro-ables for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Since we moved into our home about three years ago now, we’ve had a garden.

The first year, it was AWESOME and produced a ton of veggies, but I’ll be the first to admit, it was way too crowded and I tried to grow way too many different kinds of veggies.

The second year {being 100% honest here}, it kinda stunk.  We experienced an abnormal amount of rain that season and the garden was just so water-logged the entire time.  Towards the end of summer we finally had some tomatoes and peppers grow, but that’s about it.

This year, it’s still pretty cold outside, so I’m not quite sure that we should be planiting our garden just yet.  I’m planning to prep it and get the soil ready, but I don’t really want to plant and veggies for another couple of weeks.  Instead, I’ll start growing a few veggies inside with the new Miracle-Gro Gro-ables!

I’ve gotten a few planters and plan to just pop the Gro-ables into the soil, so that when it’s time to transplant them to the prepped garden, they are already on their way to growing big and tall!

Here’s a peek at how to plant the Gro-ables…

There are so many delicious recipes swimming through mind.  Since I’ve got the basil, sweet pepper, and tomato pods, I’m thinking of creating a delicious chicken fajita dish with all of my home-grown ingredients.  Yum!  I can taste it now!

Until then, I will patiently wait for my Gro-ables to do their thing and of course for the weather to get warmer.

Make sure to check back in a month or two to check out the delicious recipe!
