Ingredients
  

  • 4 ½ cups water divided
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 5 black tea bags
  • 3 cups frozen raspberries
  • 2 cans Klarbrunn Raspberry Sparkling Water cold
  • Ice

Instructions
 

  • In a large saucepan, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Stir in the sugar, continue mixing until it has dissolved. Remove the saucepan from the heat, and add the tea bags. Steep for 7 minutes. Discard the tea bags after steeping.
  • While the tea is steeping, saute the raspberries with the remaining ½ cup water. Bring to a simmer and saute for 3 minutes. Strain the raspberries through a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds, and add the raspberry juice to the tea.
  • Pour the tea into a large pitcher, and add the 2 cans of cold Klarbrunn Raspberry Sparkling Water. Stir to combine.
  • Pour into chilled glasses filled with ice.

Notes

Lemon wedges, fresh raspberries, and fresh mint leaves all make beautiful garnishes.
