    A summer punch mixes of orange, lemon, and lime tea-ade for a thirst-quenching beverage.

Lemonade and iced tea are two of the most refreshing summer beverages. Mixed together they offer the best of both beverages.
This punch uses a base of black and mint teas combined with freshly squeezed citrus juices and a touch of sugar to create the perfect barbecue accompaniment.
-- Alison Ladman, Associated Press
Orange-lemon-lime tea-ade
8 bags black tea
4 bags mint tea

Juice of 2 lemons

In a 1-gallon pitcher, combine the black tea bags, mint tea bags and boiling water. Let steep for 5 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove the tea bags, squeezing them over the pitcher to extract as much liquid as possible.
