This is one of my mother's all time favorite drinks in the summer. Of course, when you live in the south, anything served over ice quickly becomes a favorite. This drink, however, is different. Think mint juleps beneath a big oak shade tree. Now place a nice stemmed iced tea glass of my Mama's French Mint Tea in your hand and you're on your way!
