Passionfruit Tea Lemonade

It was hot. I was sweating. I was thirsty. There was a Starbucks. I needed something to drink, but definitely NOT coffee. What was I going to do? Well, I was also super indecisive, so I ended up asking the barista and she said, “how about our passionfruit lemonade iced tea?” And I said, “yes, that’s perfect!” But the $5 price tag was not. I downed it and promised myself I would never buy that drink again because I knew I could replicate it! And I did with this Passionfruit Tea Lemonade!

Shamrock Smoothie Bowl

There are about a million corny ways I considered starting this post. But I restrained myself from St. Patrick puns.

When I was little, I used to marvel at the fancy drinks my parents would enjoy during the holidays. Big punch bowls full of mystical liquid were at every party. Most of them were deemed “for the adults only.” Bummer! What I would’ve given for a big punch bowl full of something deemed “for the kids only!” And I think I would’ve really loved this Pom-Cherry Spritzer!
