Oh man, it’s hot outside. I mean, it is summer… but we have been having some record temperatures here in the Hoosier state this year. The other day the heat index reached 115 degrees Fahrenheit. It was so hot; people were literally cooking eggs on the sidewalk. That same week there were to concerts out at Verizon Wireless Music Center. It’s a good thing the show on Saturday was sponsored by Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka.
I recently discovered sweet tea vodka. I mean, I like sweet tea… and I like vodka. It made sense to me. My favorite drink with sweet tea vodka is the “weed and water”. The weed comes from Jeremiah Weed, another popular brand of sweet tea vodka, but you can order that anywhere and the bartender will know what you are talking about. Jeremiah Weed is one of the original sweet tea vodkas. Anyway, it’s half sweet tea vodka and half water. (It really does taste like sweet tea.)
