If you follow me on instagram, you have probably seen several photos of Starbucks Shaken Passion Tea Lemonade running through your stream. I am a tad bit obsessed with them! My favorite barista and I have joked about adding vodka, which got me thinking…that’s a dangerous thing, I know but out of it came this delicious Passion Tea Lemonade Cocktail!Passion Tea Lemonade cookingwithcurls.com

 So last year I gave it a try with vodka, and it was actually quite horrible! Then this morning it hit me…..Limoncello!

Voila…..Passion Tea Lemonade Cocktail!! Even better, it is so simple to make.

How do you make a Passion Tea Lemonade Cocktail?

Start by steeping one TAZO Passion Tea bag per 8 ounces of boiled water…..

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

Pour into the shaker, and shake to combine…..

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. In the end, the first version was the best. Part of the reason, is the 5 minutes I spent trying out the others. The ice started to melt just enough to tone down the Limoncello. So that is my suggestion, allow the drink to sit for a few minutes before enjoying. 🙂

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

  5. What a great idea to make the tea into a cocktail. I make that tea by the pitcher in the summer. It is really good. I am not much of a cocktail drinker but might try it when it gets hot again. Thanks for sharing.
