I discovered Firefly sweet tea vodka over 15 years ago on a girl’s trip to Charleston. SC. This stuff is dangerous. It is pure vodka even though it tastes exactly like a glass of refreshing sweet iced tea. Drink it slowly. It goes down smooth.

Other great ways to use Firefly or any sweet tea vodka is instead of whiskey, make a vodka sour- mix 1 oz lemon juice, sweet tea vodka and 1 egg white in an ice filled shaker. Strain and pour into a lovely martini glass and garnish with a Luxardo cherry.

Try a mojito version: muddle 8-10 mint leaves in a shaker/ Add in 1 oz lime juice, sweet tea vodka and ice. Shake, pour over ice filled collins glass and top with club soda. garnish with a long sprig of mint and a piece of ginger shard.
