How to make Cape Iced Tea.

Ingredients

  • 8 cups Water (2 boiling, 6 cool)
  • 6 Tea Bags (we used P&G Tips for these photos)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (or to taste)
  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed organic lemon juice

Iced Tea Directions

Boil 2 cups of water. Add tea bags and allow to brew. Set aside and allow to cool, then refrigerate.

When it is time to serve, mix the sugar, lemon juice, and remaining water (or water and ice). Add brewed tea, stir and serve.

We like to brew up the concentrated tea portion of this recipe when we are making tea in the morning. Then cool it down in the fridge and serve in the parlor for very relaxing afternoons watching the world go by on the front porch.

Recipe Tip:

Substitute Splenda for a sugar-free variation.

While all of our rooms have their own individual charm suitable for relaxation after the most wonderful day of adventures, we recommend the Harriet Beecher Stowe room, the Theodore Roosevelt room or the Emily Dickinson room. These rooms feature comfortable king beds, fireplaces, jacuzzi-style tubs and a relaxing stay before and after your day.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups cranberry juice
  • Fresh squeezed orange juice

Directions:

Select freezer safe glasses. Stemmed glassware with a rounded bottom inside the glass creates the best effect. Fill the bottom quarter of the glass with cranberry juice. Freeze the glasses over night.

When you are ready to serve. Pour orange juice into the glasses and serve immediately. As the glass warms up the cranberry will float to the top, creating your Cape Cod sunrise.

Cape Cod Sunrise Recipe Tip

Add a bit of champagne to turn this delightful juice into something special to celebrate the New Year or Valentine’s Day.


Enjoy the dining experience at this Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast.

At The Palmer House Inn our two to four course Cape Cod Gourmet breakfasts are always an event. Sit in the sun dappled breakfast room, as the aroma of fresh brewed coffee fills the room and enjoy a delightful meal. We use the finest ingredients and local Cape Cod grown and produced foods. Meals frequently consist of a fruit starter, followed by a sweet or savory main dish.

The Inn’s organic herb garden, we affectionately refer to as The Humble Innkeeper’s Garden, is one of the secluded nooks where you can spend time relaxing. Many of the garnishes for the breakfasts are picked each day from this garden to ensure top quality ingredients are used.

Palmer House favorites include:

Baked pears in brown sugar and spice followed by gingerbread pancakes with lemon sauce and crispy bacon, or Palmer House cranberry sorbet followed by Atlantic salmon quiche with cream cheese and a bagel.
