Iced Jasmine Lime Cooler Recipe
Nothing refreshes like a cool, tart beverage. That’s because the acidity of those drinks stimulates salivation, soothing the dry mouth that accompanies thirst. Lemonade is a perennial favorite, but limes are our go-to for a thirst-quenching punch of flavor. The floral notes of our Organic Spring Jasmine tea take workaday limeade in a decidedly tropical direction, so kick back and take a tiny vacation in a glass.
For this recipe, we use freshly made limeade for the brightest flavor, but store-bought will work fine.
Iced Jasmine Lime Cooler
Makes enough for 2 coolers
- 1 cup plus 2 cups freshly drawn water
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup lime juice (from 4-6 standard limes)
- 12 oz. freshly drawn water
- 2 pouches Organic Spring Jasmine tea
- 8 oz. limeade
Make the limeade:
- Heat 1 cup water and the sugar in a small saucepan, stirring until the sugar is completely dissolved. Allow to cool completely.
- Add in the lime juice and stir to combine.
- Add the remaining water, starting with 1 cup, until it reaches the level of tartness you like. Remember, you can always add more water later, but you can’t take it away.
- Store limeade in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. This recipe makes up to a quart of limeade.
Make the cooler:
- Bring the water to a full boil, remove from heat, and let stand for a minute.
- Add the Organic Spring Jasmine tea pouch and steep for 4 min. Remove the pouch, squeezing to extract all liquid.
- Allow infusion to cool completely.
- Add the limeade and stir to combine.
- Add ice to 2 tumblers. Pour the cooler into the glasses, and garnish with lime wheel. Serve immediately.
