Thirsty Thursday: Blueberry Iced Tea

It`s been hot outside, in the hundreds. The other day I decided to take the kids to the splash pad, big mistake! We barely lasted an hour, it was that hot out. Not even the water from the splash pad could cool us down. So I came home, with the air on, let the kids do craft and I made me some Blueberry Iced Tea with the blueberry syrup I had made earlier that morning.

This is very easy to make and taste delicious. A different way to enjoy your tea on days when it`s just too hot to even go outside. This would also be perfect to serve at a brunch.

So, what are you doing to keep cool through this heat?
