Mint & Lime Skinny Sweet Tea

Mint  and Lime Skinny Sweet Tea from The Healthy Bachelorette

Your long weekend starts NOW! I have been in craft cocktail mood lately posting all of these drink recipes, but I promise I will get back to blogging about food soon 🙂

Here is a Memorial Day Weekend cocktail recipe that uses one of our favorite products, Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka! Before we started our “real jobs,” Meaghan and I took a trip out to Wadmalaw Island, SC (45 min from Charleston) to the Firefly Distillery and Irvin House Vineyards. I believe our actual words were “why go wine tasting when you can go vodka tasting?!” We had a blast at the distillery, it is a very quaint farm with lots of dogs and wildlife. Bonus: they give you a free Firefly shot glass for tasting! Since 2011, I have been quite a few times, and may now have a complete set of Firefly shot glasses. Ok maybe I like Firefly a little too much…
