If you are looking for the prefect summer party starter give this refreshing recipe a try! A delicious “secret” from the south is the Great Southern Sweet Tea Slush which we are sharing with you today.
Sweet tea can be traced back to the 1800’s in the US and is firmly rooted in the South. In fact, every good Southerner has their “perfect” sweet tea recipe. Recipes vary from ones where you think you are drinking more sugar than tea, to others that incorporate wonderfully tasty fruits like peaches and strawberries.
You can try this super easy process with other drinks as well.
