Derby Day Tea-Lep {Lipton’s Pure Leaf Iced Tea with Mint!}

Sometimes I will admit that Hubby is smarter than me. Not very often, but sometimes. I told him that we were to mix a drink for the Kentucky Derby and he immediately says Mint Julep! I give him this look like What?! and he goes on to say that it is the official drink of the Derby. Wow, he was right!

Today I am going to show you how to make a Derby Day Tea-lep made with Lipton’s Pure Leaf Iced Tea!

First though, I want to share with you some cool facts that I have learned about this new tea…

All natural with no preservatives or colors ~ which I know is very important to most of you!

New packaging is made with 100% recyclable plastic ~ no more glass ~ are lightweight and provide a high pallet efficiency, which equates to more bottles, lighter loads and less fuel used in transport.

Tea leaves are hand-harvested only on Rainforest Alliance Certified farms by Pure Leaf’s Master Blenders (would love that job!).

Comes in two sizes – a single serve & new bigger carafe size which is perfect to have on hand to mix up quick drinks when company comes over!

Yummy flavors…

  • Unsweetened Iced Tea
  • Sweetened Iced Tea
  • Extra Sweet Iced Tea
  • Iced Tea with Raspberry
  • Iced Tea with Peach
  • Iced Tea with Lemon
  • Green Tea with Honey

The Kentucky Derby is this Saturday, May 5th. Here a fun and delicious drink to share as you watch the race with friends and family.


Servings: 1

3oz Pure Leaf Sweetened Iced Tea

3 Lemon Slices

6 large Mint Leaves

In highball glass, add mint and then crush. Add two lemon slices and fill glass with ice, then Pure Leaf Sweetened Iced Tea. Garnish with a lemon slice. For a special twist, add 1oz Kentucky bourbon.

(I doubled the tea since I served in a bigger glass and used mint flakes. No bourbon for me.)

You will be the hit of the party!


Or take your glass out to your front porch and enjoy a nice cool spring drink. It is delish!


See, even baby wants ‘more more’ 🙂
