Southern Entertaining Recipes and Provisions

April  2, 2014

We're all about collections over at Provisions -- so following that lead, we'll be making recipe collections to go alongside those that are in Provisions. Because recipes want to be together, too.??

Today: We’re learning the art of Southern hospitality, from moonshine to mint juleps.

Shop the Story

The South has a slew of fine traditions -- shrimp and grits, bluegrass, good bourbon, and a style of entertaining all about genteel hospitality and good food and drink. To host a party like a Southerner, you’ll definitely need a pitcher of sweet tea (this old-fashioned concentrate is an easy way to mix up your own), and a jug of whiskey won’t hurt. Like any good soirée, party props like drink stirrers and pretty copper cups make an otherwise normal night feel more festive.


Stick with a menu of Southern classics -- pimiento cheese, pecan pie, and mint juleps will do the trick.

Y'all need some ice tea spoons. Seriously, one of the more charming antique notes of Southern tables.
