    Lise in Indiana's Note:

    Cranberry juice and lime flavor refreshing Nantucket iced tea. Use more or less of the syrup for your preferred sweetness. Allow an hour for the tea to steep - using room temperature water keeps the tea smooth and not bitter.

      This is very refreshing! I did not use all the lime syrup but I think the leftovers will go great with a little vodka! I did not add the green food color. I made this for the March event, Something Old, Something New, A Special Menu Just for You. And I will make this again!
