FireFly Peach Tea Vodka
Sweet tea vodka may not be strange to some people, but in the northern United States, "sweet tea" was unheard of until recently when it began to be sold at fast food restaurants. Sweet Tea is a traditional drink in the southern US, basically consisting of iced tea and sugar. Firefly has infused this classic drink into a vodka using the only tea grown in America. As they say, "This ain't your Grandma's sweet tea."
On a trip to Georgia my first taste of sweet tea vodka was Jeremiah Weed. I had only recently tried sweet tea for the first time, and I was eager to see what sweet tea vodka was all about. It's incredibly sweet as you would expect, which cuts most of the kick that vodka usually had. Based on a friend's suggestion I tried sweet tea vodka and lemonade, for an alcoholic version of an Arnold Palmer, sometimes called a John Daly. Throw in some ice, and it's an excellent and simple cocktail.
When I was at the liquor store next time I saw Firefly for sale and decided to try a new flavor. I chose to buy the peach, and it was a good choice. It smells just like the best peach iced tea. Its sweet but it's still vodka, at 35% alcohol. It''s a little thick to drink by itself, but over ice or mixed with some lemonade it would be great. It's also delicious mixed with orange juice for a new twist on a fuzzy navel.
