    You can’t buy hard liquor in the grocery store in Florida either.

    This cocktail looks very tasty – especially since the weather here is still in the 90s.

    Your hard ice tea sounds like the perfect antidote for our hot Texas weather. In the same way you didn’t know they DON’T carry hard liquor in grocery stores in Texas… I’m always blown away when I travel outside of Texas and I DO see it in the grocery store somewhere else! That amazes me. I’m all like, “Seriously? I can buy TEQUILA in a grocery store? Wow… I could live here!”

    Hi Lacey!
    I’m new to your site (found you on Tasty Kitchen). May I say, I am thoroughly enjoying it. I may spend the entire evening here. My husband will never know I’m not paying attention to him, now that football season is here. Your photos are gorgeous and I plan on making your pad thai recipe this week. It looks fantastic!
    This tea looks amazing. Coming from a woman who has numerous vodkas in her freezer at all times. Please don’t judge :) I have 2 young children. I will be on the lookout for some of this. BTW, New Hampshire doesn’t sell hard alcohol in our grocery stores either. Thanks for a great site. I’ll be making you a regular.

    Ha, when we moved to Texas, we found this out the hard way, too. The town we lived in didn’t even allow the sale of beer and wine in the local grocery stores so we had to go just across the town line to the Shell gas station which had a fully stocked beer and wine section with a wine sommelier! Really! It was surreal. The closest liquor store was so far away that I don’t think we bought anything other than beer and wine for the 26 months we lived in Texas.

    I loved the pictures in this post. HUGE fan of Sweet Tea Vodka (obviously). Have you tried other recipes? Which is your favorite?
