Southern Libations: Celebrate Hot Toddy Day & Keep Colds at Bay

Looks like cold and flu season is not going away anytime soon. In the South, everything involves a tradition, even getting over a cold has a tradition. For many of us in the South, that tradition includes a Hot Toddy. If you are looking to expand upon you Hot Toddy cures, we have some help from Firefly Spirits.

Firefly Spirits founders Jim Irvin and Scott Newitt built a distillery in the middle of nowhere and made the world’s first sweet tea vodka on Wadmalaw Island (and were a part of my gift bags to my wedding party in 2015). The leader in sweet tea vodka also produces skinny sweet tea vodka and straight vodka. In 2019, Firefly Spirits launched lemonade and ruby red grapefruit, both using all-natural flavors. Firefly also produces moonshine in seven flavors including white lightning, apple pie, caramel, cherry, peach, strawberry and blackberry. An expanded distillery experience is set to open in North Charleston in spring 2020.

Check out their curated recipes of cures for common cold and be sure to share some of your remedies with us on social media using the hashtag #blacksouthernbelle
