You heard it here first folks.
I’d like to thank my dear e-friend, Antoine, for returning from Charleston to tell me about this wonderful phenomenon that has taken over the bars in the Low Country (who, by the way, I finally got the chance to meet in person for the first time at the Triangle Entertainment Industry Professionals Mixer last week at Deep South).
Little did I know that the drink that I knew would be a hit here too, had already been smuggled back into NC for an engagement party the following Saturday for the BFF and her husband-to-be for our party’s enjoyment. It bewildered me to no end that you cannot legally buy this in the state of NC… yet. I’ll see what I can do.
Ok, enough anticipation… here’s what you’ll all be driving to SC to purchase until it’s available in our closed-state liquor stores:
By itself, cut with a typical bar beverage, or my personal favorite: added to a bit of Simply Lemonade, it is the most amazing thing to grace our southern drinking habits since… well, maybe sweet tea itself.
I will be venturing south to round up a few (cases) of their newest addition – handles – before the first official football tailgate of the season that is quickly approaching. Hmmm… how much can you buy in SC without needing a permit?
Let me call in Brandon for a definitive answer on this one…
Trust me – I will figure out a way to get this into this state so that I can sell a “Little Lisa’s Firefly Sweet Tea” at Buckhead Saloon for $6.00(?) each.
PS – Check out my 8/22 post on how to special order this at your NC liquor store!
