One of the stereotypes of living in the South is that we sit in rocking chairs on front porches sipping Mint Juleps or Sweet Tea. In some areas of the South, this is true while in other areas, people still sit in rocking chairs on front porches sipping corn squeezin’s. Either way, the South is hot and humid, so finding ways to keep cool while enjoying the outdoors or indoors is necessary.
Sweet tea is a staple in the South and is generally made with 1 cup sugar per 1 gallon of tea and served cold. Spring, summer, fall, or winter, Sweet Tea is always a drink of choice. Adding the Mint Julep to it? Sweet perfection in a glass that’s sure to cool you down on the hottest of summer days.
This refreshing cocktail, which can be made as a mocktail combines two Southern favorites and is perfect for entertaining in the backyard or sipping while in a rocking chair on a front porch somewhere.
