Medicine Ball Recipe
In case you are looking to make the Medical ball at home for personal reasons, we have the recipe for it right here. The beverage can be made with simple ingredients in under a few minutes. Follow the following steps.
Heating the mixture of water & lemonade on the stove
Pour in a pan with around 180mL of water and lemonade. Set the stove heat on medium-high or high. Let the liquids simmer for a few minutes.
Place a peach and mint tea bag in this mixture
As the water and honey simmer, take the saucepan off of the stove and place it aside. Now add both peach and mint teabags into this simmered liquid and cover the lid of the pan. Now let the whole mixture steep for about 3 minutes.
In order to enjoy the best and most authentic Starbucks taste of the medicinal ball, we recommend using Starbucks’ own Peach Tranquillity Herbal and Jade Citrus Mint Green Tea bags.
Mix 1 tbsp of honey in this tea mixture
You have to make sure that the honey added is totally dissolved before you pour the medical ball into a mug. For an extra touch, garnish the drink with a few thin slices of fresh lemon. To enjoy a minty flavour burst, add a single drop of the Peppermint extract to the tea before you pour it into a mug.
