A little bit of Sweet Tea goes a long way, honey!
Sweet Tea is what keeps the South goin’, y’all! (That and a little bit of Southern Comfort) Now I’m sure y’all have a tried and true family recipe, but it’s time to branch out a little and try something new. I’m excited to share this spruced up version with y’all! I think you’ll be comin’ back for more.
My Spiked Peach Tea is one of my favorite things to drink. I make a big ol’ batch and enjoy it as long as I can! This recipe is perfect for any season too. Whether I’m sitting outside, enjoying some nice, fresh Fall evening air or soakin’ up some Southern sun in the summer, I drink this year-round. Y’all, I love this tea so much I decided to include it in the first Southern Treats box, so it’s really something’ special.
My recipe uses my very own peach iced tea, a little (or a lot) of vodka, lemonade, and fresh fruit. I promise; the whole block will be talkin’. Got the family comin’ over or gettin’ the house ready for Sunday Night Football? Put the cold ones back in the fridge and bring out a pitcher of this right after your team makes that first touchdown and my peach tea will be the talk of the whole party, I promise.
You can also drink this on its own and skip the vodka! A Southern woman knows when to pour one out and when to skip the sauce. It’s delicious either way! Make a grown-up batch for you and a virgin batch for the kiddos or the designated driver.
Mama June’s Hint:
- 2 Ounces Vodka
- 3 Ounces Mama June's Ginger Peach Tea (chilled, not warm)
- Fresh Mint (for garnish)
- Peach, thinly sliced (for garnish)
- Lemon, thinly sliced (for garnish)
- Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, add the vodka, then the Mama June’s GingerPeach iced tea, and then the lemonade. Securely put the lid on and shake for about 20 seconds until the shaker is nice and frosty.
- Fill your favorite 12oz. glass with ice and pour your cocktail mixture over the ice. Top with some fresh mint, and enjoy y’all!
- The Southern Way: If you really want to spice up this drink add some thin lemon and peach slices to the glass before you add ice.
