If you live in the south, there are two words that come out of your mouth the second you sit down at a restaurant. No, not, "wine list?" or "coffee, please". The two words are "sweet tea." Winter, spring, summer or fall. Doesn't matter. It's tea and it's sweet. I realized how crazy this was the other night when my husband and I were eating at a small local restaurant that was seriusly lacking in the heat department. We were practically shivering, but that didn't stop us from gulping down a couple of glasses of sweet iced tea.
When I make it at home, Agave Nectar is my sweetner of choice. It doesn't flavor it like honey does, and for whatever reason, I feel it's healthier than just plain old bleached white sugar. It probably isn't, but please don't enlighten me, let me live my Agave dream.
