Thai Basil Grapefruit Tea Cooler

Make this refreshing tea cooler with black or green tea - equally good either way!  The recipe here is for black tea, if you make it with green tea use less grapefruit juice.

  • Brewed iced tea
  • Unsweetened grapefruit juice
  • Thai basil leaves & sprigs
  • Simple syrup (optional)

Directions:  Fill a pint glass with ice.  In a cocktail shaker, muddle 2-3 Thai basil leaves.  Add iced, 1.5 oz grapefruit juice, 0.5 oz simple syrup and 8 oz iced tea.  Shake until frosty; pour into pint glass and garnish with a sprig of basil.
