RECIPE: Spicy Cucumber Green Iced Tea

How about spicing up your iced tea? This spin is from Ted Allen, host of Food Network’s series, “Chopped.” Ted is a consultant to Lipton’s Pure Leaf Iced Tea. He created this recipe with a prep time of just 5 minutes, using a bottle of Pure Leaf Not Too Sweet.

If you don’t like sugar in your tea or prefer a noncaloric sweetener, just brew your own tea and take it from there.

You can turn the drink into a cocktail by adding gin, vodka or tequila.
