Peach Tea Punch – a refreshing and summery punch that is perfect for hot days! And even better with fresh summer peaches.
Today my son and I are headed back to Wisconsin. We are going to visit my parents and my in-laws. Unfortunately my husband can’t get away from work, so he will be at home. We will have to try to have fun without him 🙂 My son is going to be in heaven, there is no doubt about that. His grandparents live across the street from each other, so he can just go back and forth all week long. Plus his cousins are flying in from Florida for part of the time we are there. We don’t get to see them very often, so we are very happy that we could make our trips overlap this year. Do you have any fun trips planned this summer? Vacations, visiting family, staycation?
Fresh peaches are a huge thing this time of year in Colorado. Before moving there, I never realized that Colorado grows a ton of peaches. I have used them to make Peach Lemonade before, and today we are making something even better! Peach Tea Punch! This is completely a kid friendly drink. If you want to booze it up for a party, feel free to add your alcohol of choice. Peach iced tea is relatively common, quite a few restaurants have it for sure. But we are turning it into a punch. All that means is making it fizzy. But if you know anything about me, you know that I like my drink recipes fizzy!
This peach tea punch is super easy to make. First you make a simple syrup; which is just sugar and water that you boil together for a few minutes. Then you make a pitcher of iced tea. Puree a few peaches and you are almost done. Just mix it all together and get it cold. You can make it ahead of time if you are serving for a party. Just add the ginger ale at the end, so it doesn’t get flat. You can adjust the sweetness by adding more or less of the simple syrup to your tea as well. It is kind of like a southern classic sweet tea turned up a few notches!
