I'm so smitten with the new craze of serving desserts, drinks, salads or whatever comes to mind in Mason jars. This is a good one from Deep Dish South blog. She said it's a cross between a Long Island Iced Tea and an Arnold Palmer. Naturally, she suggests to serve this in a what? Yes, a Mason jar!

Sure did like the taste of this on a muggy afternoon! And I was excited to use the new glass that I got for Mother's Day - a Mason jar on a candlestick! (The 'Rednek' Wineglass... LOL) That said, this is better than a regular old LI iced tea, as the tea really gives it that 'southern charm'! Thanks for sharing a super sipper, GailAnn!
