If you're in need of a deliciously un-caffeinated summer drink, this tropical treat is for you! The mango perfectly compliments the chamomile of the CPR, while the lime adds just the right amount of tartness. The fresh basil then tops it off, blending just right with the mango nectar. You can really taste and enjoy how each ingredient compliments the others. Or, you can just sit back, take a drink, and relax beneath some sunshine!

(Recipe makes about 2/3 gallon.)

Ingredients

  • 1/2 gal. CPR tea (made with 1/4 Cup CPR loose tea)
  • 21 oz Mango Nectar
  • 3.5 Tbsp Sugar
  • Fresh Basil  (20 leaves)
  • Fresh Lime (sliced half-moons) or 2 Tbsp Lime Juice (if serving in a pitcher)

Directions

  • To make the CPR tea, steep 12 minutes in 1 quart boiled water.  When finished steeping, strain and stir in the sugar.
  • Add ice water to the tea to bring to 2 quarts (stir to dissolve the ice).
  • Add the mango nectar.
  • MOCKTAILS: For a 16 oz glass, combine ice + 10 oz tea mixture in a cocktail shaker.  Add 2 slapped basil leaves and 2 lime slices (or 1/2 tsp lime juice), and shake vigorously for 20 sec. Garnish with a fresh basil leaf and/or lime.
  • PITCHER: Combine all the ingredients in a pitcher, stirring in 10 basil leaves.
