It's easy, it's cheap, and you can keep the ingredients on hand. And you can pass it off as Asian if you want to--I'm always stumped about what to serve to drink with Chinese or Thai . . . .
•Green Tea Punch•
Bring 8 c. water to a boil. Pour over 8 regular or decaff green tea bags and let steep according to teabag directions.
In a very large jar or pitcher, mix 1/2 a can of lemonade concentrate and 5 c. water. When the tea has cooled, add it to the jar.
Stir in 1/3 c. sugar til dissolved. Add a big handful of fresh mint from the backyard, and serve over ice.
Then, generally, the thrifty housewife will plan to make punch again the next day to use up that half-can of lemonade concentrate sitting in the freezer.
