Today is the last day of BrunchWeek and I have loved seeing all the delicious treats and eats that have been shared all week long! This is my fourth recipe and dare I say I left the best for last? If there is one thing I always serve during brunch it is Sweet Tea. Today I am sharing a jazzed up Sweet Tea recipe, this time with fruit juice mixed in called Southern Fruit Iced Tea . And what is a good Sweet Iced Tea without sugar, right? I used Dixie Crystals sugar to add the perfect sweetness to my brewed tea. Scroll down for the recipe and check out my drink inspiration in the pics below.
This cute spot not only has tasty drinks but also delicious food and mouthwatering baked goods.

I like to use family sized tea bags for my iced tea recipes.
You need 1 bag per pint of tea.
Add two tea bags to the boiling water then remove from heat and let them steep for 5 minutes.
Discard tea bags and stir in sugar to the warm tea.
Right before serving add ice.
I add a splash of cherry juice too.
