Perfect Pitchers

Perfect Pitchers

If there's only one equation you remember this season, let this be it; fresh ingredients + ice = incredible drinks for summer sipping. That's all it takes to get a memorable refreshment out to guests without breaking a sweat--in fact, these are the simplest recipes of the season.

They are as easy as steeping tea, letting it cool and adding ginger and lychee fruit for a homemade iced tea that beats any you may have had before. Or branch out from the usual and infuse your drinks with lemongrass for a sophisticated, refreshing soda. And, for a drink with a little "punch", pineapple spiked with rum is a guaranteed no-fuss party hit.

With all the recipes you need below, you're minutes away from a perfect pitcher and the most flavourful way to beat the heat this season.
