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!
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…..
Strain into a glass filled with crushed ice (or cubed), and garnish with a lemon…..
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?

Lisa, this is a great drink idea and a perfect way to use Limoncello! I love the color and will add this to my spring drink list. 🙂 Pinning! Have a happy Monday!
Thank you Cindy. 🙂 I am determined to make it feel like spring, no matter what the thermometer says!! Have a great day!
I am SO ready for spring, it’s finally 50 degrees here today! I love Starbucks Shaken Passion Tea Lemonade, I get it all the time! And this adult friendly drink sounds amazing, I will defiantly be trying it this weekend! Pinned 🙂
It is supposed to be in the 50’s here today as well….I am so excited!! We are supposed to get snow tomorrow, but I am ignoring that part of the forecast. 😉 Thanks so much for the pin Jenn. 🙂
I love the color of this drink 🙂 So glad you shared the non-alcohol tip – I’ll be needing that when I make this drink!!

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.
Thank you Kimberlee. I drink the non-alcoholic version almost daily, so I needed to add my own twist to it for fun. 🙂
This will be making an appearance this summer! So bright and cheery!
Thank you Jamie! 🙂
That just screams summer!! 🙂 Thanks for sharing
