In the past I've posted recipes on my other blog and borrowed recipes from other blogs. I thought it would be nice to have a central location to share what we're cooking up. If you're intrested in joining us, please leave a comment. The more the merrier!
To start the party I thought I'd share our favorite summery drink while it's still warm enough to enjoy it.
3 Cans Pineapple Juice
4 Gallons Tea
1 Cup Lemon Juice
2 Quarts Hot Water
11 Cups Sugar (yes, you read that correctly. Eleven cups of sugar. This is a Southern thing)
Dissolve sugar in hot water. Combine all ingredients in a 5 gallon drink cooler & serve over ice (do not add ice to the cooler as it will water it down too much).
If you're not trying to hydrate a small country, you can cut this way down. I tend to use one can pineapple juice, 3 Tbsp. lemon juice, and enough sweet tea (1 cup sugar to 2 quarts tea) to top off a gallon jug. The pineapple flavor is stronger, but we still like it.
