Hump Day Happy Hour
A Southern Comfort Cocktail for The HelpBy Julie Fishman
Well butter my biscuit, y'all: The Help, based on the bestselling novel and set in 1960s Mississippi, hits theaters today and is likely to be one of the best films of the summer.
As any Dixie Belle worth her grits will tell you, nothing's more Southern than sweet tea. Now available in stores, alcoholic sweet tea is guaranteed to get your drawl rolling.
We asked the folks at Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen to create a cocktail featuring the down-home libation. How sweet it is!
