Decided to give this another try as iced tea, making it less strong and steeping it less. And I can drink it! I get mostly blackberry, so I’m going to try adding just a little sugar.

Probably should have thought of that while it was hot, but getting a good stirring exercise in doesn’t hurt. Now I can taste the watermelon too, definitely.

It’s mostly blackberry, but that’s okay, it’s so tasty! I’m glad I figured out how to enjoy this one.

“Good stirring exercise,” hah! Try adding a teeny bit of water to the sugar in another container and swirl it around to help it dissolve, then pour it in? That’s what I do, ‘cuz I’ll never get rock sugar to dissolve in cold water.

I have agave at home but I don’t feel like carrying it around to my boyfriend’s. I should probably just buy another bottle, it’s not like it costs more than $4 and then I don’t have to waste time with sugar. Or I should get a little bottle and just make a simple syrup, same idea as what you’re saying, but if you can shake it, it mixes soooo easily. I did it with a big jar before but there’s no way I can go through that much before it gets nasty.

I fill my old agave bottles with simple syrup if that helps! Well, it’ll help once you finish an agave bottle anyways ;)

Still way too big to get through, lol I need a bottle a quarter the size of an agave bottle.
