Firefly, Sweet Tea, And Why I Could Live In Charlotte NC

Firefly Vodka, amazingness not available in a lot of states yet.
Last week when I ventured to North Carolina, I didn't know I was about to fall in love. I didn't even know it when I made a face at sweet tea vodka when it was suggested to me. I refused to order one myself and eventually, someone just proactively decided I'd like it and ordered one while I wasn't paying attention. Only when it a glass of Firefly and water arrived at my table did I fall in love with sweet tea.
You see, we don't really drink sweet tea in Madison. Everyone here drinks "ice tea" and I hate ice tea because it's bitter and not in any way refreshing (my opinion only of course).
Sweet tea is totally different and if you haven't tried a Firefly drink, try one the moment you get to a state that sells it.
I of course went home and proceeded to yap on and on about how awesome sweet tea is and how we could make it, buy it, get it somehow and how ice tea with sugar sprinkled in was not anywhere near the same thing. If anyone has a good way to make it PLEASE send it my way and I'll post it.

I guess I am completely naive to living somewhere without sweet tea. I grew up with sweet tea brewed either on the stove or in a coffee pot every night for dinner, and when I came out to Charlotte, well Bojangles has -amazing- sweet tea. Of course I like ice in it too!

Ryan - There are loads of people who pretty much never drink sweet tea in the midwest.... such a tragedy!
How do you make it in a coffeepot?
