Hello, Sweeties! Happy Monday! It’s a brand new week and we’re so excited, because the weather’s warmin’ up and the sun’s shinin’ and our gardens are bloomin’!
Most of us are sweet tea drinkers all-year ‘round, no matter the weather, but even we can admit that there’s nothing more satisfying than an ice-cold pitcher of sweet tea on a HOT day. What about you? Do you drink sweet tea more often in the spring and summer when the weather’s warm? Or are you like us, drinking at LEAST one glass of sugar-free sweet tea every day…no matter if it’s a chilly January night or a hot and humid June day?!
We know a lot of y’all are gonna be making more sweet tea than ever before with summer comin’ up, and some of you are throwing parties for the long holiday weekends. We know that brewing up sweet tea when it runs out is sometimes a chore…especially when you have party guests waiting! Who wants to wait for their sweet tea--made with boiling water--to chill before adding ice and sippin' on up?
That’s why we made our Cold Brew Sweet Tea! Brew up a glass in just 5 minutes…no need to boil water! 5 minutes is no time at all…you can jam out to some sweet country tunes in the time it takes to brew.
In FACT, that’s exactly what we like to do here at Southern Breeze! Pop a Cold Brew tea bag into a mason jar of cold water, hit the play button, and listen to our country jams! By the time the song’s over, you’ll know your sweet tea is close to ready!
Here’s our Southern Breeze Sweet Tea Playlist…put it in as you’re brewing your sweet tea, jam out to it in the car, listen to it as you sip your sweet tea on the porch…whatever you’d like! We love our Sweeties, so we wanted to make this playlist JUST for you!
Can you guess which country songs we like best? It ain't hard to guess...if it mentions sweet tea, biscuits, gravy, or any of our favorite Southern staples, it makes it to our playlist!

Southern Breeze Sweet Tea Playlist
Good Directions – Billy Currington
"You gotta stop in and ask Miss Bell for her sweet tea..." Is there anything sweeter than the romance in "Good Directions"? Listen on for Billy croonin' this good ole Southern story!
Kacey Musgraves – Biscuits
Mind your own life and everything will be biscuits n' gravy! Amen to that! We love the message in Kacey's sweet Southern song, and who doesn't love any mention of biscuits and gravy?!
Watermelon Crawl – Tracy Byrd
Imagine driving through Georgia in late July and the heat's bearin' down on ya...what better than a Watermelon Crawl to quench your thirst? Or a cold glass of sweet tea? This song is a classic and will DEFINITELY make you want an ice cold drink!
Chicken Fried – Zac Brown Band
"Sweet tea, pecan pie, and homemade wine where the peaches grow..." This song reminds us of lovely evenings in our hometown of Marietta, Georgia. And if we're being honest, all we need in life is sweet tea and pecan pie! How about y'all?
Sweet Home Alabama - Lynyrd Skynyrd
Ok, ok y'all, Sweet Home Alabama doesn't mention sweet tea but it's a CLASSIC that always gets us up and dancin'! If y'all play this while your sweet tea is brewing, there's no doubt the 5 minutes will pass VERY quickly!
Before He Cheats – Carrie Underwood
We HAD to include this because our girl Carrie's "Before He Cheats" is the anthem of Southern sass! And it's catchy as anything, don't y'all agree? We promise we won't tell anyone if you're singin' into a fake microphone and playin' air guitar while your sweet tea is brewin'!
