Green Tea Punch

Ingredients:

  • 8 cups fresh brewed green tea, chilled
  • Ice
  • 16 oz. ginger beer
  • Sorbet, flavor of choice (optional)
  • Ice cream scoop
  • Large punch bowl
  • Punch glasses

Directions:

  1. Steep 4 tea bags in 8 cups of water. Remove tea bags after 5 minutes and store in the refrigerator. You'll want to make the green tea in advance to chill it.
  2. Assemble the sparkling punch right before serving. You can halve the recipe if you don't want as much punch or you can make it larger if you need to serve a bigger crowd.
  3. Add ice and chilled green tea to the punch bowl. Pour ginger beer into the punch. Add 4 to 6 scoops of sorbet if you like.
  4. Serve with a scoop into small punch glasses.
