Baby Shower for Baby Austin

So excited to be participating in Tiffany's virtual baby shower to welcome her little man Elliott!
So many great things were made I wish we could've done this in real life so I could try them myself! 

My contribution is Little Man Iced Tea otherwise known as Blueberry Iced Tea.

It was super simple to make all you need is fresh blueberries, water, sugar, and tea bags.

This iced tea uses a simple syrup which is easily made. Seriously super easy.
Take about 3/4 of the package of blueberries, a cup of sugar, and a cup of water and bring it to a boil in a small pot. Once the sugar is dissolved and the blueberries are pretty cooked use whatever means necessary to smash the blueberries. I used a mashed potato thing...that's a technical term you know.

While your blueberry syrup was cooking you should've been brewing some tea. I like to use cold brew tea bags just because it's faster. I did about two quarts of water with 4 tea bags. 

After your tea is brewed and your blueberries are sufficiently mashed simply mix the two together. If you don't like pulp you can use a strainer to separate the liquid from the pulp.

Add some ice and some whole blueberries for garnish and you've got a great party drink that's pretty too.

Take a look at the other items that were made to celebrate Elliott and Tiffany!
