Mint Tea Slush for #SundaySupper Picnic

This week our Sunday Supper Team is throwing a Summer Picnic fit for a July 4th celebration or get-together no matter what the season is in your area.

When I think picnic I think outdoors. When I think picnic outdoors I think food, drinks, games, drinks, good conversation, drinks, music, drinks and drinks.
I always have water on hand. We like ice cold beer. Kids can have real fruit punch, water or iced tea. Oh yeah I almost forgot. Something new this year. Mint Tea Slush!

Thanks Jennie from the The Messy Baker for putting this picnic together! Here’s my contribution. MINT TEA SLUSHES
This is a really simple recipe. You can adjust it to your tastes. I like a lot of mint and on the sweeter side.
I start off with the tea. 4 cups of water to 1 cup of mint leaves plus 1/4 cup sugar. Bring to a boil and stir to dissolve sugar. Turn off heat to steep tea. When it reaches the desired strength. Strain into a cup or vessel to pour.

Fill ice trays –this should fill two trays– with tea. Freeze.

Put frozen tea cubes in the blender. Pulse it to crush. Add a little water if needed to work the cubes.
