    Sounds great. A new play on a classic Arnold Palmer, which is based on black tea (iced) and lemonade.

      Neat. I’ll have to try that! Vanilla Camomile. We used to feed camomile tea to our canaries when they were under the weather!

    This recipe sounds refreshing. I discovered a twist on this. Use your favorite lemonade or tea then add Chamomile syrup and Lavender syrup. Start out with a cap full of each until you reach your desired flavor. I got the syrup on Amazon.

    You can add a variety of flavors even some blueberry syrup.
