from Decoration Day
It’s hard to believe that the juice of just one lime can make all the diffrence in a pitcher of sweet tea. But try this and you’ll see why it is the signature beverage of College Mound Decoration Day. The key is to make the tea strong so that when poured over ice, it dilutes to just the right strength.
