|The Sweet Tea Bourbon Abides!
I happened by a liquor store tonight that I usually never visit. Mostly because it never seems to be open. But tonight it was, and I popped in specifically so see if it carried Firefly Sweet Tea Bourbon. No one else up here in NY has it yet as it was only released locally for the first time in early April. But I figured it couldn't hurt to to check it out, and lo and behold they had it. The dude behind the counter said it was actually a mistake. They had ordered the Sweet Tea Vodka (bleh!), and got this instead. I happen to believe that the Universe knew I would be stopping by this particular evening. Lucky me!
Now, I normally don't go for sweetened or flavored liquor. I'm sweet enough, thank you very much. But this is really good stuff. They start with some high quality bourbon from Buffalo Trace in Kentucky. Then they infuse it with pure cane sugar from Louisiana and South Carolina Tea. The result is absolutely delicious. Smooth enough to serve over ice for sipping as it's only 60 proof. Cut with a little spring water and served with a lemon slice is another way to go.
I don't know. I've just become a fan so it's gonna take me a while to figure out how I like it best.
