Beverage Day

Over the summer we like refreshing and tasty beverages. Today try this great tea drink with a little kick of bourbon for Beverage Day.

 

Peach Tea with Bourbon

10 bags peach flavored tea
20 thin slices ginger
2/3 c. sugar
1 c. bourbon
¼ c. lemon juice
Mint for garnish

 

In medium saucepan, heat 4 cups water to simmering on high. Remove from heat. Add tea; steep 10 minutes. Remove and discard tea bags. Transfer tea to large pitcher. Add 3 cups cold water; refrigerate until cold, about 4 hours.

Meanwhile, in small saucepan, combine ginger, sugar and 2/3 cups water; heat to simmering on medium. Reduce heat to maintain simmer 15 minutes. Strain out and discard ginger. Refrigerate syrup until cold.

Stir cold ginger syrup into tea along with bourbon and lemon juice. Makes about 10 cups. Serve over ice, garnish with mint.
