Sweet Tea that Packs a Punch

The dog days of summer aren't here yet, but they're approaching. Soon, you'll be beset with barbeque invites and swimming parties. and it's always good to bring a gift. Especially if the gift can be consumed.

Sweet tea is a summer southern tradition. It's delicious and thirst-quenching. But sometimes, when the kids are screaming around the pool and the lighter fluid's exploding, you need something stiffer. Meet Jeremiah Weed Sweet Tea Vodka. I recently had a martini made from this stuff (had a bit of sweet and sour mix shaken into it, in a sugar-rimmed martini glass), and it was a mind blower. So yummy. Such a perfect southern drink that suits just about anyplace across America.

Naturally, something this good is hard to find. You can't order from the site, but they'll helpfully answer your queries via email. Go to and ask for availability in your state. And then settle back and sip away.
