    A distillery in America has created an alcoholic sweet iced tea.

    Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka, created at the Firefly distillery in south Carolina, tastes almost exactly the same as the favourite beverage of the area. Only it has a bit of a kick.

    The Sweet Tea Vodka is 70 proof and it can be mixed with lemonade or served over ice, lime juice, mint leaves and soda water to create a ‘Mo-tea-to’, a take on the traditional cocktail the Mojito.

    Creators Scott Newitt and Jim Irvin set out to be ‘the Jack Daniels of vodka’. The drink was released in April last year and less than a year later they are hoping it will be serving up a taste of the American south across all 50 states.
