Sweet Peach Basil Tea Cocktail

Recipes > Smoothies + Juices

By: Candice Kumai

Summer means sweet tea and cocktails on a porch, in my opinion! So I combined both of them, and bring to you a fabulous cocktail with a kicky and natural punch by adding Belvedere Peach Nectar Vodka! I let the vodka do the sweet talking, whereas a real southern sweet tea would add about a pound of sugar! Belvedere Peach Nectar has no artificial flavors or sugar, so using this as a flavor bomb to sweeten up your chilled black tea leaves you feeling refreshed and relaxed!

Peach-Basil Iced Tea Beta-carotene-rich peaches help keep your eyes vibrant, while basil aids in digestion to fend off bloating.

What you’ll need: 12 cups boiling water 8 black tea bags 4 ripe peaches, thinly sliced 1/4 cup fresh basil¬†sprigs 2 tablespoons honey or maple

How to make it: 1. In a medium saucepan, add water and tea bags. Bring to a boil. 2. Lower heat, add additional ingredients and simmer for additional 5 minutes before discarding tea bags. Remove from heat and allow tea to come to room temperature. (Tea can sit and steep for 3 hours to overnight in the refrigerator.) 3. Strain using a fine mesh strainer. 4. Add honey (if using) stir and pour over ice. Garnish with fresh herbs.
