I like my iced tea nice and strong.
And by strong, I mean lots of vodka.
Luckily, there are others out there who apparently agreed – and thus created Firefly Vodka Infused with American Tea.
If you’re new to this, you may be thinking of the Long Island variety the second you hear “vodka” and “tea” in the same sentence. But that is SO not what this stuff is. It tastes like a pure mixture of vodka and freshly-brewed sweet tea. I find it to be very sweet; you can mix it with water and it tastes just like sweet tea. I love to add water and fresh-squeezed lemon juice for a lower-calorie Arnold Palmer, but you can also definitely add some straight-up lemonade for the real deal. Another low-calorie option would be to add Crystal Light – anything from the lemonade flavor, to one of their flavored iced teas.
I love to serve it in a highball glass with lemon slices and mint sprigs. Doesn’t it look like the perfect summer cocktail?
I must warn you, though – this beverage can be very dangerous. It goes down oh-so-easy, and on a hot summer day, you may just forget about the heavy dose of vodka in your glass.
Are any of you fabulous babies out there as obsessed with this stuff as I am? And if you haven’t tried it yet, I’m thinking today’s the day – give National Iced Tea Day a run for its money!
