Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup fresh blackberries 
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries 
  • 3 family-size ice tea bags, such as Lipton 
  • Pinch baking soda 
  • 2 cups frozen strawberries, thawed 
  • Fresh mint sprigs, for garnish 

Directions

Combine the sugar, blackberries, raspberries and 4 cups water in a large saucepan; bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer. Simmer, mashing the berries and stirring a bit, until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and add tea bags and baking soda. Let steep for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, mash the strawberries in a bowl. Divide the strawberries among the cups of an ice cube tray and freeze until completely frozen, about 4 hours.

Remove the tea bags from the hot water. Add 4 cups cold water to a pitcher, then pour in the tea. Place in the fridge to chill.

When ready to serve, add the strawberry ice cubes; the flavor will intensify as the ice cubes melt. Garnish with mint sprigs.
