Sweet Tea With A Kick

Author:  Spring

Happy Friday!   I decided that since it is Friday, and the weekend is so close, to share a cocktail that is perfect for the summer.  I grew up in Kentucky and lived seven years in Georgia, so, I am familiar with sweet tea.  A couple of years ago one of my  friends introduced me to Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka.  She mixed a cocktail combining a shot of it with some Crystal Light lemonade.  It was unlike any mixed drink I had before.


This sweet tea vodka is great to mix with some lemonade at a summer get-together and to sip away.  There are many brands out there, but I have to say my favorite is Firefly.  Firefly also has many other flavors, but I am sticking to the sweet tea.

I guess Firefly has latched on to the popularity of low-cal mixed drinks because they now have Skinny Sweet Tea vodka.  I haven’t tried this version yet, but I plan to buy some soon.

In Syracuse, they are introducing this low-cal beverage slowly, as if we are a focus group.  They are only selling it in mini bottles to see if it will be a hit before they spend the bucks on the bigger bottles.  I know it will be popular in the South.  I just hope the northerners develop a taste for it.  Then I won’t have to ask my mom to send it to me.




Even though this has nothing to do with tea or alcohol, I  thought I would let you see how Gracie is growing.  Here is a picture to keep you updated.  She loves being in the backyard when we are working on getting it ready for sod.  As you can see, we still have lots of work, but slowly we are making progress.


Have a good week-end, and remember that if you are drinking sweet tea vodka, don’t drive.


I was not paid by Firefly. I am just a fan.

    That sounds good. I’ll have to look for that. Have you tried Skinny Girl Margaritas? I have a bottle chilling in the fridge for what I hope will be a little celebration this weekend. It is supposed to be delish.

    Gracie is adorable!

    Been meaning to try that stuff and glad to know what to mix it with. Sounds like a good lake drink for 4th of July!!! And easy to deal with. I already have crystal light lemonade in 12 oz bottles in my fridge!
    Also want to try that skinny girl Marg. mix that your Mom blogged about. I have had it in restaurants but haven’t bought any. Do you think it will make me a skinny girl???? Hahaha If so, I’ll buy a truck load!!!
    Gracie looks so sweet. Hope she is a good pup too!!
