I have an 11-month old niece who loves iced tea.
Okay, that’s a stretch.
Hope has been married to my nephew Dustin for 11 months…and, like me, she is a daughter of the South who loves sweet tea. (She’s been tweeting about it all weekend!)
So, in her honor — and in honor of the day — I am re-posting my blog from this very day in 2010…
Happy National Iced Tea Day!
I grew up drinking my iced tea brewed with boo-coo’s of sugar, but today I prefer it with a just a touch of the pink stuff (Sweet ‘n’ Low).
Now, I know there are a lot of coffee drinkers out there who have never tried iced tea, or who simply consider iced tea the ‘second-class citizen’ of caffeinated beverages. If that is true, I ask you this:
Which drink is so popular it has it very own piece of flatware?
(It has its own long-handled iced tea spoon. Coffee? No such utensil.)
So, when the next heatwave leaves you feeling parched, consider a tall, thirst-quenching glass of sweet iced tea. If you’re lucky, you might just pick up a sexy Southern drawl along the way.
