    Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka

    Has anyone had this?

    I love sweet tea, and I tried to make a sweet tea/vodka drink lastyear with hawkeye. It was so gross that I couldnt finish it.

    does it taste like tea? does it taste like vodka? is it sweet enough to drink straight?

    Re: Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka

    This is actually really good imo ...
    You could definitely drink it straight with no problem.
    But i like to add a bit of water to mine.

    If you like tea you should like this -

    Re: Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka

    The problem is that you were using hawkeye vodka. Name one good thing about anything hawkeye related?

    the price for a poor college kid.

    thats as far as it goes though.
    I cant imagine skol being much better, but i suppose it would be alright if you did it with a finer vodka.

    At a price of around 18 bucks for a 750, it isnt too expensive. Hopefully they have it somewhere back home.

    It is good stuff. Mix with half water for a Sweet Tea drink, or Go half of the sweet tea vodka, 1/4 water, and 1/4 lemonade for an Arnold Palmer.

    I can pretty much guarantee that the Hawkeye Vodka contributed significantly to your gross-ness. You should probably try something that doesn't taste like gasoline... like Absolute or Smirnoff, at the very least.

    Re: Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka

    My friends like it and mix it with a splash of cola. I don't care for sweet tea or any tea for that matter, but it tastes like tea to me.

    Re: Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka

    My gf has a different brand (about the same price) in the liquor cabinet here. She doesn't care for it, but it's not half bad. I'd drink it more, but I just can't take sugar. Gut rot-city...

    Re: Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka

    I hate tea but it tastes like tea. You could get very drunk very quickly was our groups estimation when given a sampler at a bar. I would think though that if you wanted to mix it that water would just make it taste like watered down tea. Lemon, cola, etc would likely be better.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Very good, it is huge in the south here! Sweat tea is pretty good, tastes just like it half water/vodka.
