Thirsty Thursdays: Homemade Sweet Tea Vodka

red velvet sweet tea vodka 019So I’m here with some Iced tea. Oh I’m sorry… It’s sweet tea vodka.

I like iced tea year round… and adding a little vodka… okay well a whole 5th is not ruining my day.

and it’s super easy to make at home. So trust me you don’t have to waste your money on firefly. (not to be confused with the show.) Okay, okay. I’m the only nerd that thought of firefly the T.V. show but guess what I don’t give a crap, go ahead judge me.

besides getting confused about booze and t.v. shows I’m getting tired of doing math for a wedding, I might add it’s a friend’s wedding, a lovely couple, Did I mention I’m terrible at math? It’s funny people think I’m good at it because I can tell you a conversion in 5 seconds but let’s think about it this… I’ve only been baking everyday in big commercial sized kitchens since I was 19 so I kinda just remember that stuff. But basic math I have to do it 3 times to make sure the answer is the same. I’ve only been doing the math for 3 days now!

Now I’m watching someone eat a big cookie. I want it. maybe he will share….

Now about this vodka…

red velvet sweet tea vodka 013I mean all you need is a good quality vodka, a container to hold it in. tea bags any kind you want… and simple syrup.

and it only takes like 2 hours to make.

red velvet sweet tea vodka 015Almost finished! I promise.

When I say 2 hours I mean you put the tea bags in there for to hours and you make simple syrup right away to cool and then you can go watch sex and the city it’s a marathon…Or you can watch the Friday the 13th marathon on SyFy like me but I figured most would go with the first choice…

And ignore text messages like “what kind of guys do you like?” what kind of question is that? um I like real ones… what the heck am I supposed to say?


Homemade Sweet Tea Vodka

1 5th of good quality vodka ( I can’t stress this enough!)

4 tea bags

1 cup sugar

1 cup water

Place your tea bags in a jar/ container then pour vodka in on top. Cover the liquid mixture from a 45 minutes to 2 hours. In the mean time place water in sugar in pot and bring to a boil turn off the heat after a minute of 2 the sugar should be dissolved, Let cool. After the tea and vodka have sat fish out the tea bags squeeze excess liquid into the rest. the simple syrup should be cool so now you just pour it in there and enjoy it!
