Raspberry Sweet Tea
For an adult version, try substituting vodka for the water in the sugar syrup.
FOR THE SUGAR SYRUP, COMBINE:
2 cups sugar
1 cup water
1 pint fresh raspberries
FOR THE TEA, POUR:
4 cups boiling water
4 tea bags
pinch baking soda
For the sugar syrup, combine 1 cup water, sugar, and 1 pint raspberries in a small saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar and break up fruit; remove from heat.
Strain sugar syrup through a fine-mesh sieve. For a clear liquid, allow to drip without pressing the solids; let cool while brewing tea.
For the tea, pour 4 cups boiling water over tea bags and baking soda in a large pitcher. Steep tea for 5 minutes; remove tea bags.
Stir sugar syrup into tea, add ice, and pour into tall glasses. Garnish each serving with raspberries.
