Trying Reese Witherspoon's Sun Tea

Hello everyone!
Happy Mother's Day!
Erik and I recently tried Reese Witherspoon's recipe for Sun Tea from her book Whiskey In A Tea Cup.
It's actually her grandmother Dorothea's recipe.
I thought it would be the perfect post in honor of Mother's Day!

You will need:
8 Black Tea Bags
1 Gallon of Water

Place the tea bags in a gallon-sized jar with a lid and fill with water, letting the tags hang over the lip of the jar.

Top with the lid and secure.

Set the jar in a sunny spot outdoors.
Let brew for 4 hours.

While the tea brews, prepare the simple syrup.

You will need:
1 Cup of Sugar
1 Cup of Water

Bring the sugar and water to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring until the sugar has dissolved.
Remove from heat and let cool.
Serve the syrup on the side so guests can sweeten their tea to taste.
The syrup may be stored in the refrigerator, tightly sealed for up to 1 month.

It was a lot of fun to make tea in a unique way.
Brewing it in the sun made it feel more rustic.
We brewed ours over the weekend and enjoyed it with some barbecue.
It definitely got us in the summertime mood.
What is your favorite summertime drink?

All my love,
