Sweet Peach Tea with a Little Kick

August 3, 2012

Everyone loves sweet tea.  The Texan that I live with loves sweet tea.

In the short time I spent living in the South, I learned to love the drink that everyone talks about, and even writes country songs about.  I was never a fan of just HOW sweet it was, though.  So, I came up with my own mixtures of it.  Later on, I started mixing in the regular Luzianne tea with flavored teas– peach being the absolute favorite.

Here is my version of “Sweet Tea”, with a little liquor added at the end, just for fun:

On the stove, boil 2 quarts of water.

Add 1 large bag of Luzianne tea, or 5-6 regular sized bags of Lipton tea.  Use 4-5 bags of Peach tea (my favorite is Celestial Seasonings)

After boiling for about 5 minutes, take the tea bags out and add 2/3 cup of sugar or honey.  This is the step where the southerners would add much more sugar, but I cut back a bit.

Put in a large pitcher or glass jug, and add 2 more quarts of water or the equivalent in ice.

Once it’s in your glass, mix in a shot of vodka– I used Svedka Clementine Vodka on this occasion, YUM!
