It is no secret that I am Southern through and through. It is also no secret that one of my favorite places in Nashville is called The FarmHouse! So if you have not visited this iconic Nashville Restaurant, you need to bust a move and do so! Chef Trey is committed to sharing his Nashville roots through the flavors he creates and shares with all who visit and I can promise you, you will be delighted! From locally sourced products to hand crafted drinks and the tremendous vibe that the friendly staff shares you will know true Southern Hospitality first hand!
So on to the reason for this post. The mixologist at The FarmHouse has created a drink (my personal favorite) called Southern Remedy. True to my Louisiana roots, I am a bourbon girl and this drink recalls sunny afternoons, long talks on the porch, watching the firefly show as the sun begins to fade. I am going to share the article with you where the full recipe for the Southern Remedy is found – true to the mixologist that created it. Then I will share my at home riff…… because I am all about making this simple when it comes to sharing our home with all our friends. Original article: The Farmhouse – Southern Remedy
Now here is my at home riff on this cocktail.
1 T warm water
1 T honey
2 oz sweet tea
2 oz bourbon (try Woodford Reserve yumm)
1 T fresh lemon juice / 1/2 tsp lemon zest
2 tsp fresh orange juice / 1/2 tsp orange zest
2 T Fever Tree ginger beer
4 oz Ginger Ale
Stir together honey and warm water until thoroughly combined. Add tea and next 4 ingredients. Add ice then top with ginger ale. Serve with a lime wedge….
So yummy you will slap yo mama! Heee heee
Now if you use their recipe for sweet tea the lemon zest, orange juice, and orange zest are not necessary.
Now this only makes one serving so you better hide yo’self on the back porch while you sip this else you will find the folks clamoring for one or stealing yours.
