Orange Blossom Mint Refresher Recipe



Orange Blossom Mint Refresher Recipe

I came up with this recipe because I'm not a fan of regular iced tea. This tea has the perfect combination of freshness and sweetness; the orange blossom water gives it a distinctive flavor. Ingredients :
20 cups water
1 bunch fresh mint (about 1 cup)
1 cup sugar
1 large navel orange
1 to 2 tablespoons orange blossom water or 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 teaspoons orange extract
Optional: Orange slices and additional fresh mint

Place water and mint in a 6-qt. slow cooker. Cover and cook on high until heated through, about 6 hours. Strain tea; discard mint.
Whisk in sugar until dissolved. Cut orange crosswise in half; squeeze juice from orange. Stir in juice and orange blossom water. Transfer to a pitcher. Refrigerate until cold, 4-6 hours. Serve over ice with orange slices and additional mint, if desired.

Test Kitchen tips :
Orange blossom water, also called orange flower water, can be found at most specialty grocery stores or spice shops.
Using orange extract instead of orange blossom will add a hint of orange flavor, while blossom water adds a unique floral note.
