Starbucks has become so creative over the years with their limited time drinks. The only problem? They’re limited. As in, they go away forever. And some of us aren’t quite ready to part with them.
One of my favorite limited time Starbucks drinks was the Berry Sangria Iced Tea. It was SO good, but it was gone SO fast.
I personally love sangria…the real kind…with alcohol.
So when this flavor came out I had good intentions to buy one, take it home, and add a little extra “flavoring” myself to see how it tasted with alcohol. But I never got the chance, because I was pregnant at the time and the flavor was gone before I was able to try out my little experiment.
So now we’re covering an at-home recipe for you to make this yourself! (And add a little extra “flavoring” if you so choose!)
We have started covering discontinued Starbucks drinks to make at home, so be sure to check out some of our other recipes!
To make a Berry Sangria Iced Tea at home, you will need these ingredients:
You will start by boiling some water. Once they water is boiling hot, you’ll add passion tea bags and sangria syrup.
Let this mixture sit for 15-20 minutes and then remove the Passion Tea Bags and refrigerate for at least 1 hour (I prefer to do mine overnight)
Put ice in your cup, along with orange slices and blackberries. Then pour half of your cup full of apple juice, and the other half with the refrigerated passion tea mixture.
And just like that, you have your very own Berry Sangria Iced Tea! If you want to add some wine or whatever your alcoholic preference is, I would do 1/3 of each liquid (apple juice, passion tea mixture, and wine)
Not too shabby, right? If I would have realized it was this easy to make, I would have done it a long time ago! Be sure to comment below what other recipes you want us to cover next!
