When warm weather hits, all I want is all the ice cold drinks! Starbucks Passion Tea Lemonade was one of my favorite summer drinks. Served at my favorite coffee joint, Passion Tea Lemonade is a pretty pink lightly sweetened tea with just a hint of tart, you could say that this drink totally hit the spot! Unfortunately, it also contains about 33g of sugar. Not exactly slimming! I’m a huge believer that just because you choose to eat healthy foods doesn’t mean you have to give up every treat you used to adore. You just have to indulge smartly.
I thought I’d share my copycat version of this drink. If you’d like you can add a teaspoon of ACV to make it more of a Good Girl Moonshine. I’ve also made this version “sparkling” by pouring half of the tea mixture into a glass with a can of seltzer water. Feel free to put fresh fruit in your glass to flavor it a bit more. I like strawberries and have even added a sprig of mint! I do recommend using fresh lemon whenever possible. It elevates the taste just a bit. 🙂
I found Tazo Passion Tea at Wal-mart, but you can also find it on Amazon. I also prefer to use THM’s Super Sweet Blend for this drink. It offsets the lemon perfectly! Plus, Super Sweet is VERY budget-friendly because you use less of it. This whole drink is very budget-friendly!
This recipe is painstakingly simple. All you need is three ingredients and a few minutes of time! I hope you guys enjoy this refreshing drink. I like to make a mason jar of it and take it on the go.

YUMMMM- thank you so much! This was my favorite cold drink at Starbucks and it tastes just like it but so much healthier!
Hmmmm, I’m the lover of the Raspberry Passion Tea Lemonade that is offered at Starbucks. I wonder what to add to your drink to get that flavor? At least I can start with this. Thanks.
Would a tiny bit of raspberry flavoring do the trick? Or, you could always use one raspberry tea bag along with the passion tea! That might work. 🙂
This sounds amazing!! Can you tell me what size jar you use?
A quart-size Mason Jar!
Would that be about one whole lemon squeezed? Or more?
Yes! About 1 lemon. 🙂
