WATERMELON WITH GREEN TEA SIMPLE SYRUP
WATERMELON WITH GREEN TEA SIMPLE SYRUP

Ingredients

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 Tbl Tropical Vacay Green Tea
Drawstring Tea Bags
Small seedless watermelon, chunks, slices or melon-balls

Watermelon drizzled with simple syrup. Summertime simplicity. Pineapple, Mango and Passionfruit in our Tropical Vacay Green Tea make for a sublime simple syrup. We love it with fresh fruit, like these watermelon spheres, and it’s also excellent for cocktails and mocktails.

Instructions

1.Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan and simmer over medium heat until the mixture is clear, thickened and darkened a shade - a very light amber color. Turn off the heat. Add 1 Tbl Tropical Vacay Tea to a disposable tea bag and drop in the simple syrup. Allow to steep for 20 mins.
2.Alternatively, you can steep a cup of Tropical Vacay Tea by steeping 1 tsp Tropical Vacay Tea and straining off the leaves. Combine the steeped tea with a cup of sugar and simmer to create a simple syrup.
3.Drizzle the Green Tea Simple Syrup over watermelon. We used a melon baller to make cocktail glasses of sweet watermelon with the simple syrup. Yum!
