We did both the vodka and the wine tasting before heading over to check out the oyster roast, food trucks, and listening to the live band.
During the vodka tasting, we got to sample a Lemonade vodka which Firefly doesn't sell in stores. It was by far my favorite, you could hardly taste the alcohol. I also tried their Skinny Sweet Tea vodka, which they sweeten with Stevia to keep the calories down.
Other big hits during the tasting were the Banana Pudding cordial and Apple Pie Moonshine. I didn't think the Apple Pie moonshine was as good as our recipe, but I might be a little biased!
Irvin House Vineyards was started by a retired couple who knew nothing about wine-making after planting and producing a few tons of muscadine grapes. It's really amazing what they've done with very little training. The wines are definitely on the sweet side, but our favorite was the Magnolia white wine.

Ally and her husband are quickly becoming our favorite people. She is probably thinking shit just got weird, but seriously...ha!
Next stop, Coastal Crust food truck. Yum!
After a fun-filled but busy weekend, we opted to go the breakfast for dinner route on Sunday night. I took it one (or ten) steps further by not only dying our pancakes pinkish-red, but using a big cookie cutter to form them into hearts. It was a festive twist to a lazy dinner! Just make sure to use cooking spray on the cookie cutter in between pancakes or it'll be a hot mess!
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
