When Summer Gives You A Strawberry Moon...

Jul 14, 2016|

This year the first day of summer was marked by the full moon! When the full moon occurs on the summer solstice, that is called a “Strawberry Moon” [because it is also strawberry harvest time and, in theory, one could continue to harvest into the twilight hours by the light of this moon].

To mark the occasion, it seems only right that we consider an appropriate drink. We propose trying delicious Iced Strawberry Tea [the recipe for which we found at http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/iced-strawberry-tea ].

The ingredients are:

  • 1 pint fresh strawberries
  • 4 cups brewed tea, chilled
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ice cubes

Set aside five strawberries. Place the remaining strawberries in a blender, cover and puree. Strain into a pitcher. Add the tea, lemon juice and sugar, stirring until the sugar is fully dissolved. Chill.

Serve in chilled glasses, over ice. Garnish with the reserved berries. [Yields 5 cups]

While perfect for drinking on a hot summer’s day, or a fully moonlit night, we are fairly confident that you might want to add this recipe to your permanent library for use on any occasion you want to have something a little more exciting. You certainly don’t have to wait until the next strawberry moon. [The last one was 1967, and the next is not until 2062.]
