Hard Arnold Palmer... oh yeah!

In Pennsylvania there are so many liquor regulations, it seems to take a while for new things to get here.

The good thing is... The Wine & Spirits Stores often have people giving out samples!

Recently, they were sampling Sweet Carolina Sweet Tea Vodka. She had it straight in an iced shaker and mixed with lemonade!

I tried it straight first and thought it tasted great! Then I tried it mixed with lemonade and really LOVED it!!

It's a drink that would be PERFECT on a hot summer day. But it really tastes just like an Arnold Palmer; half lemonade/half iced tea.... so I think they'd probably really sneak up on you quickly!

I admit I am not into sweet drinks, but hello Simply Lemonade! I love the Simply line of juices, they're the best and all I will buy. I don't know why it made me smile so big to see it on your page haha.

They also have a lemonade flavored vodka. One son gave me the firefly sweet tea vodka, another the Carolina lemonade vodka. Here is a tip from me, no matter how full you fill the glass with ice, do not, I repeat do not fill the glass with half of each kind of vodka. It tasted great, but I had trouble walking after on drink. Lesson learned.
