Here's a recipe for success: sweet tea and vodka. In one bottle.
South Carolina's own vodka distillery has made a splash-- as evidenced by today's article appearing in the NYT's Dining section: "A Southern Twist: Tea Infused Vodka." ["The house wine of the South is how Dolly Parton's character in Steel Magnolias describes" sweet tea.]
Can't wait to mix a "Mo-tea-to"-- that's Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka over ice, lime juice, mint leaves and soda water.
One word of caution, though. If you're going to grow your own mint-- and fresh mint leaves MAKE a mojito-- grow it in a container. Even then, watch it-- mint has been known to scale walls and leap over pots. Mint is one of those plants with LEGS-- invasive doesn't even begin to describe it. Plant mint in the garden and you're gonna MOW it. And no one wants a MOWito, right?
