If you follow me on instagram, you have probably seen several photos of Starbucks Shaken Passion Tea Lemonade running through your stream.Β  I am a tad bit obsessed with them!Β  My favorite barista and I have joked about adding vodka, which got me thinking…..Passion Tea Lemonade

that’s a dangerous thing, I know. πŸ˜‰Β Β  So last year I tried it, and it was actually quite horrible!Β  Then this morning it hit me…..Limoncello!

Remove the tea bags and allow to cool.Β  I always make extra and store it in the refrigerator.Β  πŸ™‚Β  To make the cocktail; you will need 2 ounces of passion tea, two ounces of Limoncello, and a cocktail shaker full of ice cubes…..

Warning: decorative paper straws make lousy stir sticks!

In the name of research, I tried 3 different versions of this drink trying to get it just right.Β  In the end, the first version was the best.Β  Part of the reason, is the 5 minutes I spent trying out the others.Β  The ice started to melt just enough to tone down the Limoncello.Β  So that is my suggestion, allow the drink to sit for a few minutes before enjoying. πŸ™‚

If for some reason you would like to make this drink without the Limoncello, just substitute Simply Lemonade. πŸ™‚Β  Can you tell that I am ready for spring?Β  Are you looking forward to spring, or is it already warm where you live?
