Sweet Tea Vodka a quick hit

Although sweet tea has been a Southern beverage staple for generations, McDonald's and other fast-food companies only recently discovered it and are offering their version to the public at large.

However, Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka is an entirely different thing. In just three weeks on South Carolina store shelves it has become the top-selling flavored vodka in the state.

I reported on this new product back in April, but never thought I'd be talking about this sort of success so soon.

“We’re a company based in the South and everyone in the South loves sweet tea. We were thrilled that Firefly Sweet Tea met our expectations and became the number one selling flavored vodka in such a short time frame,” said co-owner Jim Irvin.

Firefly, which is based on Wadamalaw Island, 30 miles south of Charleston, now is distributing its new flavored vodka in New York, Nevada and Colorado as well as South Carolina.

You have to try Firefly sweet tea vodka. Mix with one part sweet tea vodka, two parts water, one part lemonade. Taste just like sweet tea. I love it!

Wait until you taste the new brand of sweet tea vodka called "Sweet Caroline.". It is so good and will become a number one drink all over the country, not just south of the Mason-Dixon.

I like it with the lemonade and a splash of ginger ale instead of water. And the new one out is "Sweet Carolina"!!! - I just bought a bottle but haven't tasted it. Price is the same so we shall see.
