Boasting “pure tea, pure sweetener, pure vodka, pure water,” Firefly introduced four new sweet tea-flavored vodkas to the national market last spring — raspberry, mint, lemon, and peach. The peach-flavored variety stood out as the cleanest-tasting and most drinkable of the bunch with a deep, caramel-like tea taste and an assertive peach/apple flavor. A glug of lemonade or citrus juice with tonic and lime makes for a mighty fine cocktail. Their latest concoction — a Sweet Tea Bourbon — might already be in the running for next year’s list.
