This is a fun grown-up drink I made with some leftover peaches, bourbon I had from brining our turkey at Thanksgiving and sweet tea I made for lunch one day. It’s tastes like summer time in the South. I can imagine drinking this in a rocking chair on a front porch while the sun in going down. It would also be a nice addition to your next summer cookout or barbecue.
Start by whirling up a peeled and chopped peach in a blender or food processor. The leftover can be used in smoothies or swirled into plain yogurt. Pour 2 cups of sweet tea in pitcher.
Whisk 5 tablespoons of peach puree into the sweet tea. Add 1/4 cup of mint leaves and crush to release the oils. Stir in 3 oz. of bourbon. You can add more if you like a stronger flavor. I like the sweet tea to shine through.
Pour into a glass with crushed ice and garnish with some mint.
Hope you enjoy this as much as we did!
Have a fun weekend!
