Green Tea Pomegranate Limeade

This is a really long name for a pretty simple drink. It came about at my house for two reasons:

1. I just saw this recipe for Green Tea Pomegranate Lemonade and it sounded like a delicious way to pretend Spring is coming in Boston.

2. My friend Sara just purchased a citrus juicer that she is obsessed with using (we also had fresh lemonade this weekend).

So we whipped up a batch and settled in to watch "Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy." Limeade good. Movie bad.

Green Tea Pomegranate Limeade

6 cups hot water
6 green tea bags (we used decaf because Sara can't half caffeine after 12 p.m.)
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup lime juice
3/4 cup 100% pomegranate juice
Lime slices

Brew the tea for a few minutes. I find green tea gets bitter if you let it steep more than a couple minutes, but others may disagree.

Dissolve the sugar into the warm tea. Combine tea, lime juice, and pomegranate juice in a pitcher over ice. Chill in the fridge.

Serve! Pour over ice and garnish with a slice of lime and/or some fresh mint if you have it.
