What’s better than sweet tea on a warm, sunny day…Bourbon Ginger Peach Sweet Tea!! This cocktail is made with fresh ingredients, making this the ultimate refreshing drink!
My husband and I have been trying to do more weekend activities with the kids, so we took them to the Peach Park in Clanton, AL last Saturday! I honestly think that I was more excited than they were! They have the best food, produce, and seriously the best peach cobbler! I love their peach cobbler because it’s not too sweet; it’s just right! I really despise super sugary fruit pies and cobblers! I feel that it takes away from the naturally sweet taste of the fruit.
While the kids were running around, touching everything (lol!), I was stocking up on some fresh produce! I purchased some okra, corn, bell peppers, squash, fresh preserves, and lots of peaches!! I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do with those peaches, but since I was at the Peach Park, I felt compelled to buy tons of peaches! ?
When we got home, it hit me! Why not create a peach cocktail?? I am a new fan of bourbon and I love sweet tea, so that’s how the Bourbon Ginger Peach Sweet Tea was born! Whenever I make a cocktail, I try to incorporate fresh herbs and/or fruit! I feel that it adds a completely different, and tasty, spin on the average cocktail! And I was super excited that I was able to use my new Mason Jar Glasses! Check them out here! Libbey Drinking Jar with Handle, 16 -Ounce, Set of 12
This Bourbon Ginger Peach Sweet Tea has so many different delicious flavor components! You will be surprised how well the ginger paired with the peaches!
