With Spring just a week away, I can’t tell you how eager I am to eat out on my porch in the evenings after work.  The grill working and having something cold and refreshing in my hand when I peal into a grilled pork chop or chicken breast.

Every year Americans flock to the outdoors after being cooped up in their homes.  It is instinctual, we strive to be outside and there is nothing more refreshing to have a sweet tea beverage in your hands.  I have spent some time in the southeast part of the United States for my ‘day’ job, and their love of the sweet tea inspired me to search out for a fantastic sweet tea that also packed a flavor punch.  No pun intended.

Pomegranate juice is incredibly healthy. With its antioxidants, it almost balances out the soda and the sugar in the tea, right?  Garnish with some lime wedges and mint leaves, and you won’t care while you are on your back porch, surrounded by your family and some grilled food!  Cheers!
