I’m talking about pureed strawberries, fresh mint, a hint of lemon combined with the delicious taste of Milo’s Famous Sweet Tea. YUMMMM!

Now that the days are warmers and longer (the sun is setting at almost 11PM here!) we have plenty of time to grill out and enjoy the warmer nights with friends. We live in a small military community, so we have a close knit group of friends that love getting together for cookouts. Where we live in Kodiak, Alaska receives a LOT of rain. So when the sun comes out to play, so do we. We love finding recipes that everyone can enjoy, unlike my Beergarita recipe, this recipe is great for all ages. You can pair this Southern Style Strawberry Sweet Tea recipe with my favorite Cheesy Jalapeno Bacon Pinwheels or Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies for the perfect treat!
