Finally, a light at the end of the long, cold, winter tunnel. I do believe I suffer from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), and would never make it anywhere farther north without a blue light.
After enduring a weekend of cold rain and two children with the flu, I think a celebration is in order. With temperatures in the 70’s this weekend, I have cracked open my bottle of Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka, bought a few weeks ago with dreams of enjoying it on my back porch.
This vodka is handcrafted on Wadmalaw Island, SC, and as the name implies, is a blend of tea and vodka. I was afraid it would be too strong and not really ‘sweet tea tasting’ at all, but on the contrary, it really tastes just like sweet tea with a kick. If you’re a sweet tea lover or a fan of the Long Island Ice Tea, you’ll love this.
Make mine a double.
