Mexican Tea (Ponche)

Oops.. this event almost slipped out of mind…. I had to do this post after trying to photograph a muddy brown liquid for hours together.. until i got a decent picture… more than anything else , for Dear DK …. I live in a place where I get to eat mexican cuisine more than anything else… but when I saw most recipes posted by a lot of my dear fellow bloggers… I decided to go with this beverage , great for a hot day!

This goes to A.W.E.D Mexico, an event hosted by dear DK of Culinary Bazaar

Ingredients:

1 large teabag (orange pekoe tea)

8 cups of water

1-1/2 cups sugar

2 cups pineapple juice

1 cup orange juice

1/3 cup fresh lime juice

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

Method:

Pour 2 cups of boiling water over the teabag, and steep for 10 minutes. Remove the teabag, and add the sugar, stirring to dissolve. Add enough water to make 2 quarts of tea (approximately 6 cups more).

Add all the ingredients. Garnish with some orange wedges and mint and serve chill!
