In the Mississippi heat, we need all the refreshing drinks we can get. And sometimes, water just isn't enough. Try out this fruity twist on original sweet tea. 

You'll need: 

  • 4 quarts water, divided
  •  Sugar substitute equivalent to 1 cup sugar
  •  10 individual tea bags
  • 1 package (12 ounces) frozen unsweetened raspberries, thawed and undrained
  •  3 tablespoons lime juice

Directions: 

  1. In a large saucepan, bring 2 qts. of water to a boil. Stir in sugar substitute until dissolved. Remove from the heat. 
  2. Add tea bags; steep for 5-8 minutes. Discard tea bags. 
  3. In another saucepan, bring raspberries and remaining water to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3 minutes. Strain and discard pulp. Add raspberry juice and lime juice to the tea. 
  4. Transfer to a large pitcher. Refrigerate until chilled. Yield: 15 servings. 

Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with Splenda no-calorie sweetener.
