On July 4th, people want drinks without alcohol. One popular choice is sweet iced tea from the southern United States. This recipe is a little different than usual because it uses simple syrup to sweeten the tea and a tiny bit of baking soda to make it clear. This way you don’t have to worry about sugar grains in your drink. It’s a delicious option for celebrating the holiday.

- 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 quart distilled or bottled water
- 1 quart ice cubes
- 1 ¼ cups cooled simple syrup (1 cup sugar and 1 cup water boiled until sugar is dissolved)
- 1mL CBD tincture

Remove the tea bags without squeezing them. Add ice and stir until melted. Stir in simple syrup and CBD, pour into glasses with fresh ice and garnish with lemon slices.
