Currant mate ice tea.

July 26, 2016

When my mum allowed my to raid her red currant bushes I wasn’t sure if I should make this cake or something new. You know my obsession now with drinks I guess, so it might be no surprise that I tried to make one with currant. Something refreshing and uplifting since I’ve been working really hard preparing all this posts for my holiday – when this is published I’m on holiday, so say hi on snapchat @sarahnade01!

A tip on the side: freeze some of the ice tea in cubes to serve so it doesn’t water down when you cool it.
