Take a look at this:
Isn't it glorious? Don't you just want to take a long drink right out of the bottle? Are you sad and confused because you're not sure you can make this refreshing brew at home?
We are here to tell you that you are quite wrong. This bottle of limonada was cold-brewed overnight and was both incredibly easy to make and incredibly easy to drink.
Cold-brewing is a technique used to brew both tea and coffee that slowly steeps the drink over many hours. The flavor profile is lighter and sweeter than iced tea made the traditional way (bringing the tea to a boil, then pouring over ice) which tends to highlight the stronger elements of the tea. To make a fantastic cold brew, you simply dump 1/3-1/2 of a cup of looseleaf into a gallon of water and wait 8 to 10 hours. The tea will self-steep over that time (and it's not an exact science, if you leave the tea for 10 and a half hours, you'll be FINE). In the morning, simply strain the tea to get the leaves out and mira pa' eso! Cold-brewed iced tea!
