Southern Fruit Iced Tea

This is a spring and summer take on our fabulous Southern Iced Tea, made with the addition of pineapple juice, orange juice and lemon juice - and a touch of cherry juice, if you're so inclined.

Now if that doesn't scream spring, I don't know what does!

Okay, yeah. I know... as of this writing here in February, I'm a little early, and I know we are technically still in the winter season, yes, even down here, but this little taste of spring weather that we have experienced in the past couple of weeks has had me in the mood for ushering in springtime. It's a short-lived season down here anyway, but one of my favorite times of the year.

Even though this winter has been uncharacteristically cold even for The Deep South, except for those rare occasions where bringing out the cocoa is more appropriate, southerners drink iced tea pretty much year-round to be honest.

Fruited iced tea is a Deep South favorite and most recipes do include some combination of orange, pineapple and lemon juices, though, as always, there are many variations. I like this combination when made with my iced tea concentrate, and when I have a jar of Maraschino cherries in the fridge, I like to add a bit of the juice too.

Here's how to make it.
