Tea Party Tuesday ~ Honey Lavender Sorbet

Happy Tea Party Tuesday!!

Wow...it has been awhile since I have actually
sat and had tea lately! Summer has been very busy and fun.

This week I would love to share the most 
delicious sorbet I made recently.  Perfect for summer! 

Honey Lavender Sorbet.



Full printable recipe can be found by clicking HERE.


Filling a hollowed out lemon half dusted with sugar was a great
way to serve the fresh sorbet!! PRETTY.
It was really a tasty combo of flavors and easy to pull off. 
FYI -  I purchase my culinary lavender
at Amazon.com but I think it can be found at Whole Foods. 

Now onto the TEA!!  At the beginning
of the summer I experimented making my own different flavor
combo's of iced tea & by far the one that I continue to 
whip up on a regular basis is:

STRAWBERRY PEACH MINT ICED TEA 



For each 8 oz glass I used about 3/4 cup sun brewed iced
tea and then I added a shot glass each of both peach and 
strawberry nectar.  I then topped it off with a splash of 
mint simple syrup and stirred!

Mint Simple Syrup recipe can be found HERE.

Serve over ice!!

I have really missed posting for tea time and stopping
by to say hello. However, I have been doing
some new and exciting things which is exciting.
I hope everyone is having a GREAT summer!!!

Hugs

Hi Trisha,
Mmm, both your tea and sorbet look delish! I love the idea of using a half lemon for the sorbet. Great post and thank you for coming by to have tea with me. Enjoy your day.

Trisha - I've been super busy this summer, too, and absent from posting regularly - really missing play and inspiration time in Blogland! So glad you're on my facebook feed - this sorbet sounds delish - and that tea is a winner, too!! Hoping to get a better routine for teatime back in my life come September! Thanks for some sweets I might try to eat - though I have ten pounds that needs to beat a hasty retreat!
Joy!
