Tea Party Tuesday * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Fruited Iced-Tea and Cheesecake

From the Cheesecake Factory - Yum!
Welcome to Tea Party Tuesday! Since it's so hot here in Texas and other parts of the country I thought we'd have fruited iced-tea with our cheesecake today.
Jillian's Fruited Iced-Tea

For her garden club friends, Jillian Bradley would use this favorite recipe that's been in the family for years. 

 Fruited Iced-Tea

2 cups sugar
2 cups water
1 quart hot water
8 tea bags
1 quart cold water
2 cups orange juice
1/2 cup lemon juice

Boil sugar and water 5 minutes. Steep tea in hot water 5 minutes. Add tea and sugar to quart of cold water. Add fruit juices. Stir, mix, and serve over ice. Garnish with mint and fresh fruit. (And don't forget the straws!)
