Many years ago I spent some time in Cashiers NC on business. There is a wonderful restaurant there called The Cornucopia Restaurant that is located on a ridge overlooking a valley in the Blue Ridge Mountains. This was a signature drink there at that time. I don't know whether they still offer it, but is a very refreshing iced drink on a hot muggy day in the South.

This is my interpretation of that drink.
