While vodka may be the last thing you thought you’d come across in the heart of Austin, Texas, it’s just what you’ll find with Deep Eddy. For everything from cocktails to on the rocks, Deep Eddy Sweet Tea Vodka is the perfect antidote to a scorching Texas summer day. It’s not your grandma’s sweet tea, but it has the same slow, sweet, Southern taste — and it’s actually infused with real tealeaves and local clover honey.

Some say you can even smell the happy, sunshine-laced scent of freshly brewed iced tea. Although it isn’t currently sold outside of Texas, a portion of the proceeds support the Friends of Deep Eddy, an Austin-based group dedicated to protecting the 75-year-old namesake swimming hole. Like the bottle says, ‘take a dip … the vodka’s perfect’.
