I found a great secret ingredient to duplicate the lemony bite in a can of Brisk Iced Tea: Kool-Aid unsweetened lemonade drink mix has the perfect mixture of citric acid and lemon juice solids to help you effortlessly clone this one over and over again by the pitcher, as your thirst requires.

I found this recipe three years ago and you can't tell the difference. I took it to work, had my boss try it and he thought is was the real thing! My kids love it and with summer coming i'll be making it again thank you so much!

WE'RE HOOKED! I also reduce the sugar a bit, and use the Lipton decaffinated tea bags. YUMMY! What a money saver for our family. We make at least 4 quarts a week. (Hint) Stick with the Kool-Aid brand Lemonade concentrate...I tried a knockoff and it was terrible. Happy Brewing!
