Morena Escardo A large glass of iced tea with lemon and honey is one of the most refreshing drinks during hot summer days.

This recipe has all these qualities and more, as it has been enhanced with sweet papaya and watermelon pearls, turning it into a summer beverage extravaganza. Make it for your next brunch, BBQ, or dinner party. The glasses will bring so much beauty to the table that flower arrangements will be unnecessary, and everyone will be impressed and refreshed!
