Fire Fly Sweet Tea Vodka made here in Charleston SC on the only tea plantation in the western hemisphere. This stuff came out a little over a year ago and it took off like a wildfire. It sneeks up on you too. I know it spread around the south and have seen it in cities in NC. Dont buy the knockoff stuff made in Maine trying to get in on the market. Firefly also immensely helped Charleston Tea Company whick makes it and other teas . This tea plantation was also featured on the history channels episode of the history of tea.

This stuff is awesome.
Just mix it with some quality lemonade and you have instant alcoholic Arnold Palmer's.

Super refreshing and perfect for BEACH weather.

Yep... All over PA.

Our Liquor stores are state owned, so there's very little difference in selection across the state... so I think it's safe to say it's pretty much state wide

Firefly is delicious. I think it's the only spirit I know of that you can just add water to and it makes it delicious...

I was at the liquor store yesterday picking up some Dry fly gin and saw the Firefly stuff but hadn't heard anything about it. Guess I gotta go back and grab a bottle!:al

Where I bartend, we go through a couple of bottles a week of Teaka Sweet Tea Vodka. Most people mix with water or club soda and a lemon.

Just picked up a bottle, a nice change from the $50+ bottles of Scotch!

Probably won't crack it open until Christmas Eve though.

Thanks for the suggestion!

:tpd:

It doesn't taste like there's any alcohol in it when you mix it with 7-up, so I guzzle it.

A friend of mine brought a bottle of this brand, and a bottle of fresh lemonade to my B&M a few months ago. He told us that his friends call this drink a "Jack Dempsey" :D

I can also testify that it goes down easy.... and then, sneaks up on you!! :tu

Doesn't taste like vodka at all to me. There's a LOT of sugar in this drink.
