MINTED TEA NECTAR

This drink was served to an aquaintance on a Florida vacation in the late 1959s.

3 cups cold water
2 tablespoons instant tea
3 tablespoons sugar
1 cup apricot nectar, chilled
fresh mint leaves, bruised or 1/4 teaspoon mint extract
Limeade cubes*

Mix tea and sugar together with the water, stirring until completely dissolved.  Blend in the apricot nectar and mint.  Let stand about 10 min,; remove and discard mint leaves.

To serve pour tea mixture over limeade cubes in glasses and garnish with additional springs of mint.  Serve at once.

Limeade cubes: Take one 6-oz. frozen limeade concentrate and mix with water according to directions on container; pour into refrigerator tray with dividers and freeze.
