  • Kentucky Derby Drink | Spiked Peach Sweet Tea recipe

    What’s more southern than sweet tea? My friend Tori introduced me to peach sweet tea years ago. Unfortunately, living in the Midwest it isn’t always easy to find. Last summer I decided to puree a can of peaches and magic happened. I blended them into fresh brewed tea. Of course adding a little whiskey never hurts either. I recommend serving your peach sweet tea along side a bottle of whiskey to let guests choose. Either way, they’ll be pleased as punch.
