Lately, I’ve been enjoying cocktails made with tea. This Peach Tea and Rum Cocktail definitely takes the cake. It’s a “peachy” twist on an old Charleston punch recipe from 1783! Who knew hip tea cocktails have been around for so long?! We’re currently obsessed with this refreshing, lightly sweetened cocktail. We used the peach tea we bought in Charleston then added some rum, peach liqueur, lemon juice and simple syrup. This summery cocktail is mild, simple and extremely refreshing. We’ve been sipping on them ever since we got back from our trip. I’ve also made a few pitchers for pool parties. Always a hit!
Peach Tea and Rum Cocktail
3.5 ounces peach flavored tea (home brewed, un-sweetened, cold)
1 ounce rum
1/2 ounce peach liqueur
1/2 fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup
Brew 8 cups of peach tea and refrigerate until cold. Keep it in the fridge to make more drinks during the week.
Combine all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake with ice for 20 seconds.
Strain over a large ice cube. Cheers!
