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.
