Seeing this post about mason jars on the main page of Serious Eats yesterday made me think of one of my favorite New York City drinks, the sweet tea at Daisy May's BBQ. Available at their 11th Ave. restaurant, and from their Midtown cart, I can't think of a more refreshing drink for this time of year (you may say the secret ingredient is sugar). Flavored with mint, it's a tad bit pricey at $4, but you get to keep the mason jar. It may not be a collectible, but it sure is fun to collect.
