Southern Sweet Tea Cocktail

“Southern Tea” was invented by poet and author by day, mixologist by night Derek M.A. Alexander. He was inspired by his trip to Atlanta in the great state of Georgia, where he took his first sip of Peach Tea and loved it! It is the southern answer to the “Long Island Iced Tea.” Also known as “Dirty Tea.” Just be sure to take it slow on a hot summer day this one will catch you off guard.
