Copycat Starbucks Passion Tea Lemonade

Copycat Starbucks Passion Tea Lemonade is so refreshing, but today I’m showing you how to make one at home for a fraction of the cost. It’s one of my favorite no to low calorie drinks, especially in the Spring and Summer!

COPYCAT STARBUCKS PASSION TEA LEMONADE

Long ago I started making my own hibiscus refreshers and today you are going to learn how to make delicious, nutritious Passion (hibiscus) tea concentrate so you can start making your own at home and saving money too! 

Let’s jump right in, because as usual, I’m running behind and honestly this recipe is so easy and quick that it doesn’t need any fanfare!

TAZO PASSION TEA CONCENTRATE RECIPE

Starting with Tazo Passion Tea we’ll make a Passion Tea Concentrate first; meaning you can pour yourself a tall, refreshing glass anytime without taking up half the fridge with a big pitcher! Also use in place of Hibiscus Simple Syrup in my Hibiscus Mojito and Healthy Hibiscus Margarita as well! Let’s hear it for Skinny Cocktails!

Back to making the concentrate, stop distracting me! 😉 wink, wink

INGREDIENTS FOR PASSION TEA CONCENTRATE

Yay baby, that’s it! Easy! Place it all in a saucepan, slowly bring up to simmer. Once simmering, remove from heat and cover allowing to steep for 5 minutes. 

After steeping, using a slotted spoon or a sieve or spider, remove mint and tea bags, pressing gently to release all that good stuff. Toss or compost the spent tea and mint.

Allow to cool, then transfer to a jar or bottle – true confessions, I have a “glass” addiction; I love unique jars, glasses and bottles. I think this is one from a fancy lemonade. Using a funnel slowly pour Passion Tea Concentrate into 1 liter (33.81 oz) bottle or or equivalent jar, seal and place in fridge until ready to use. 

Now you are ready for a Copycat Starbucks Passion Tea Lemonade Refresher any time you want! Warning, they are addictive!

Passion Tea (Hibiscus Tea) Concentrate

Your hibiscus Passion tea concentrate is made and ready to roll, now what?

INGREDIENTS FOR STARBUCKS COPYCAT PASSION TEA LEMONADE

  • Ice
  • Lemonade or Limeade, I like this new Simply Lemonade Lite (made with Stevia, non-GMO)
  • Passion Tea Concentrate
  • Cold Water (I like filtered)
  • Mason jar or cocktail shaker (not required, but gives it that authentic Starbucks, shaken look)

HOW TO MAKE A STARBUCKS PASSION TEA REFRESHER

  • Pour passion tea concentrate, cold water, lemon or limeade and a few ice cubes in a large mason jar or cocktail shaker)
  • Place ice in desired glass(es)
  • Shake, shake, shake it up!! 
  • Pour over ice into tall glass, enjoy!

That’s the low calorie version, this Passion Tea tastes just as delicious without the lemonade. 

NO CALORIE, SUGAR FREE PASSION TEA REFRESHER

Use same measurements as above, but squeeze a lime or lemon wedge in place of lemonade/limeade, for a naturally sugar free version of Starbucks Passion Tea. If the pucker factor is too much, either increase the water or sprinkle in a couple of my favorite quick dissolve (purse ready) stevia tablets.

I hope you invite some friends over, sit on the back patio and enjoy this refreshing beverage, guilt free! Here are a few other non-alcoholic summer drinks I think you might like!

Notes

Make up a pitcher for a crowd. Also great as a refreshing aqua de Jamaica, pour in a splash of Passion tea concentrate and cold water and ice, mix and enjoy.

Add a shot of vodka or rum to the refresher for spiked drink, or replace cold water with sparkling seltzer water for a light/skinny cocktail.

Adjust the concentrate up or down depending on how tart you like it. I like mine pretty tart, so tend to be more half concentrate and half water.
