Oh my word! How have I not written about sweet tea?? How UN-HOSPITABLE of me!!
Sweet Tea is a staple in the south. Every time I land in Dallas, the first thing I want is a sweet tea from McAlistair’s Deli. In the south, you can buy sweet tea by the gallon at any legitimate restaurant. Sweet tea is such a hospitable drink, as it always served at every social gathering! Whether a party, a holiday, a shower, a church fellowship, a luncheon, or a housewarming party, sweet tea is always included.
So, brew up a pitcher of tea and invite a friend over. Before you know it, you will be chatting, laughing, and having yourself a good ole’ time!
