In case you missed it, I was in Tennessee for two weeks, working a little festival called Bonnaroo.  And by little, I mean 100,000 people and 150+ artists.  Yep, it's a beast! And it's also one of my favorite places on Earth.

Bonnaroo is such a positive, creative environment, and I always come away feeling inspired. And also sleep-deprived. When I was down on the farm, I drank a lot of Tennessee whiskey, and I decided to make you guys a cocktail that combined two southern specialties... whiskey and sweet tea!

And that's it! This is a great drink to enjoy poolside while listening to your favorite tunes.  And if you're looking for a playlist, here's the one filled with all the greats at Bonnaroo this year.
