Only in the South!

If you live in the following states, you HAVE to try Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka! Products are currently available in South Carolina, North Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia, Colorado, Nevada, Kentucky, Louisiana, and New York.

On the rocks this drink tastes just like homemade sweet tea! No alcohol aftertaste in the least. So yummy!

I'm not a big drinker, but when hanging out with friends, I do enjoy a yummy cocktail from time to time. (Or a Redbridge) Most bars do not carry a gluten free beer and I don't know of any in my little coastal town that offer one other than an apple cider. I am not a cider fan.

On my boyfriend's birthday a few weeks ago, we had a kickball tournament and then moved the party to our favorite bar downtown, The Goat and Compass. It's one of those neat places that isn't crowded but isn't dead. And they really offer cool things that appeal to customers. Such as "ski shots", where there are four shot glasses attached to a snow ski and you take the shots in a group. So fun. And they have a board where you can pre-buy drinks for friends at a later date and they write down your name, who it's for, and why. It's not in the heart of downtown on Front Street; it's off to the side in what they call "The Brooklyn Arts District". So it's relaxed.
So that night of his birthday I asked the bartender for a flavored vodka something and he said he knew just what I would like. He sat a drink down in front of me that looked like sweet tea, so I thought it was a whiskey drink. I let it sit there because I thought "No way is this mine!" Then he asked if I tried it, and I asked Oh was this mine? So I took a sip. HEAVEN. So good. My new staple! And it's local...even better!

Interesting... yet another thing from your blog that I think I am going to have to try!

Oh & I am loving the Absolute Los Angeles (Acai, Acerola, Pomegranate, and Blueberry). & I just learned that Absolut is donating $250,000 from the sale of Absolut Los Angeles to Green Way LA! Drinking good & doing good.

...so you think this would replace my daily morning iced tea?

Oh no!!! New Jersey is NOT on that list! Hmm, I'm thinking a road trip to New York is in the near future. Thanks for the info! :)
