WHAT IS BEST SOUTHERN DRINK? ICED TEA WITH PEACH TEA SYRUP

I enjoy going to Sonic at Happy Hour and getting a Peach Tea.  If you have not guessed, I am from the South.  Originally, I am from Mobile, Alabama or the L.A. of the South. (lower Alabama)  It is true that we love our sweet tea and our peaches.  When you put the two of them together, it is a happy marriage that lasts forever.  If you enjoy peach tea, why not try to make the Peach Syrup at home.  It is easy, and nothing is more refreshing than a glass of extremely cold Iced Peach Tea.

Why did I decide to make peach tea?

My friend from Confessions of Mommyaholic went apple picking recently.  Janine’s apple picking post encouraged me to go apple picking.  I had never heard of apple picking in the south.  So, I had no idea that you could even pick apples in Arkansas. Last week, we went apple picking for the first time.  Anyway, I found a great place for picking not only apples but peaches at Cadron Creek Orchard in Guy, Arkansas.  We were lucky to discover while picking apples that they had fresh peaches.  Their end of the year peaches was ready to be picked.  We were able to pick both apples and peaches.  It was a beautiful fall day with a cool breeze blowing.  The perfect apple and peach picking day.

What recipe did I use to make this peach tea?

Ice tea is made with a simple syrup which includes equal parts sugar and water.  It is cooked on the stove until all the syrup dissolves.  I decided to cook some peaches in this simple syrup mixture.  Since there are 16 cups to a gallon, I choose to use eight peaches which equal one peach per two cups.  After cooking and straining this mixture, you can make a gallon of tea and add this syrup to it. 

TIPS:

  • You might want to try adding less sugar when cooking your peaches if they are sweet.  If my peaches are real sweet, I may only use 1/2 to 3/4 cup of sugar. 

  •  If using this peach syrup in a gallon of tea, you can use less sugar on the peaches and adjust the sugar amount after adding the syrup to the gallon of tea.  Always add sugar to tea when first making it while it is hot.  This helps the sugar to dissolve. 

  • My favorite way to use the peach tea syrup is adding it to each glass.  

  • By adding this peach tea syrup to each glass of tea, everyone can sweeten the tea the way they like it.  Garnish with additional peach slices. 

 Be sure to save the leftover peach goodness to top off ice cream, pancakes and more.

WHAT IS BEST SOUTHERN DRINK? ICED TEA WITH PEACH TEA SYRUP

Just like peach tea refreshes our thirst, the Word of God can refresh our Spirits.  If you need to experience a time of refreshing for your soul, get alone with God and ask for forgiveness for unrepented sin.  Once the sin has been forgiven, the Holy Spirit can renew and refresh your Spirit.  Acts 3:19 Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.

  2. Diane, We have our mixture cooling right now and are anxious to try it out in our tea. Have you ever tried to freeze some of the syrup?

    • Debbie, What a great idea! I have not but I think it would be great to freeze some of the syrup in ice trays and add it to your tea. I may have to try it. I am giving away a Cuisinart PowerTrio Hand Blender on my homepage. It is a great Cuisinart product that is has so many uses liking chopping, dicing, whisking, slicing, and blending. I am a Southern Food & Travel blogger. I live in Arkansas but have lived in Georgia, Tennessee, Louisiana and Alabama. I blog about recipes, restaurant reviews, faith, family, travel experiences, and GIVEAWAYS! I have a great cookbook to give away next. I hope you will be able to receive my e-mail post for updates.

      Blessings Always and visit anytime! Diane Roark
