Copycat Starbucks Medicine Ball Recipe

I'll Be Drinking This Copycat Starbucks Medicine Ball Recipe All Winter Long


I love a good Starbucks run. Hot or iced, there's always some drink I'm craving, and Starbucks gets it right every time. One of my favourite items to order on a cold winter day is the Medicine Ball, also known on the Starbucks menu as the Honey Citrus Mint Tea. It's a hot, soothing blend of tea, honey, and lemonade that never fails to warm me up. And, as the name would suggest, it's the perfect cup to cosy up with when you're feeling under the weather.

So when I found this copycat Medicine Ball recipe from TikTok user @chambo_mommy, I knew I had to try it. It requires just five ingredients: water, peach tea, citrus mint tea, lemonade, and honey.


In just five minutes, I whipped up a comforting drink worthy of any travel mug. If you're looking to switch up your morning routine or soothe your cold symptoms — and save some money in the process — then this sweet, citrusy tea is just the thing!

This recipe is for one trenta-sized drink, or two smaller, grande-sized servings. You can double the number of tea bags for a stronger brew, and also adjust the amounts of honey and lemonade to taste.
