Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka.


I am not one for sweet liquor.  My days of raspberry Smirnoff swilling at frat parties are over. Finito.  These days, I stick pretty exclusively to good gin and dry wine, so when my ex-boyfriend’s new boyfriend tried to hand me a glass of Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka, I was wary. (Not of the boyfriend, he’s lovely.)

Boy was I wrong. This stuff is delicious, and dangerously so. So… this may be a good time to measure. Or at least make sure you’re in a safe place.

Firefly Arnold Palmer
-Half Sweet Tea Vodka
-Half lemonade (tart = better)
-garnish with lemon slice, mint, peach, etc.

When I called J to share the joyful news, this is the conversation that ensued:

C: this drink makes me want to sit on a porch swing with you during a thunderstorm

J: ya and wear long cotton nightgowns, and listen to crackly blues playing from an old radio. like, a lady singing, “lovin’ this here man of miiiiiiine..”

C: i done loved heeum so lawwnnngggg

J:  and he done and…and DO ME WROOONG…..


J:  …here… in this miseryyyy OH I SAID THIS MAAAAYULLLNN….this here maaayulnn….he gone and done me wrong

C: maaaahhh mayuln, he ain’t mah mayuln no MOOOOO




someday we will actually do this. we will.
