Over the last several weeks, Laura and I have been sharing with you the secret to cleaner dishes. We’ve made the switch to using Cascade Platinum Pacs, as Cascade My Platinum Ambassadors – I guess it’s not so much of a secret anymore. We’ve talked about our sparkling clean dishes, and the fact that we no longer have to worry about pre-rinsing or re-washing our dishes now that we are using Cascade Platinum. That layer of film that’s been on my glasses as long as I can remember, it’s gone too. Not only does Cascade Platinum get your dishes sparkling clean, but you’ll even notice that your dishwasher is cleaner. We’ve also shared with you Gail Simmons’ Bumbleberry Pie Sundae Recipe and how beautifully it looked served in our sparkling clean crystal goblets. After all, if you really think about it, why would you want to put the time and effort into preparing a fabulous meal… only to serve it to your guests on dingy dishes?
Cascade Platinum Pacs are essential to summer entertaining!
This post wraps up our series on Cascade Platinum Pacs, so we wanted to share one of our all time favorite drink recipes. And it happens to look spectacular in our sparkling glasses, thanks to Cascade.
Raspberry Iced Tea Recipe
8-1/4 cups water, divided
2/3 cup sugar
5 individual tea bags
3 to 4 cups unsweetened raspberries
In a large saucepan, bring 4 cups water to a boil. Stir in sugar until dissolved. Remove from the heat; add tea bags. Steep for 5-8 minutes. Discard tea bags. Add 4 cups of water.
In another saucepan, bring raspberries and remaining water to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3 minutes. Strain and discard pulp. Add raspberry juice to the tea mixture. Serve in chilled glasses over ice. Enjoy!
Yield: about 2 quarts.
Here’s a little tip: Make some extra tea, pour it into ice cube trays, pop in some fresh raspberries and freeze. These cute little ice cubes will ensure that your raspberry tea doesn’t get watered down, even on the hottest of summer days.
