Sweet Tea, to be exact.
That would be - TEA.
Brewed strong and, well... SWEET.
(Sweet, as in, put-me-into-a-diabetic-coma-and-rot-my-teeth-SWEET)
Need I say more?
Well Hush My Mouth and Pass Me a Glass!
You Will Need:
8-10 tea bags or equivalent in loose leaf tea (if you want to keep it real, use Luzianne or Black tea)
2-3 cups of water
1 cup* granulated sugar
Small saucepan with lid
1-gallon sized pitcher
Combine sugar and water in saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, thus making a simple syrup.
Remove sauce pan from heat. Add tea. Cover and let the tea steep as little as 10-20 minutes (or up to 2 hours!).
Pour the tea syrup into your pitcher and fill with water to make 1 gallon. (If using tea bags give 'em a squeeze to extract every last drop of tea juice.)
Serve by pouring over ice in individual glasses.
(*You want about 1 cup of sugar per gallon of tea.)
