Ring in summer with this super refreshing and simple Spiked Peach Tea cocktail recipe that only requires 3 ingredients.
Summer is officially upon us here in Texas, and anything that involves ice cubes is our new best friend. Between iced tea, Mint Juleps and Alabama Slammers, the South pretty much has all of the token summer drinks covered.
And in honor of National Iced Tea Day (yes, this was news to me too), we punched things up a bit with this Spiked Peach Tea cocktail recipe.
Before you go running for the nearest iced sweet tea, pinky swear to remember this drink recipe for your next dinner party, okay?
I’m willing to bet hugs and macarons on how much your guests will love it, though admittedly it may be dangerously easy to drink…
Let’s go ahead and openly acknowledge most of us won’t ever leave Dunkin’ Donuts without a donut. And by “we”, I mean me. Obviously.
So this is my actual purchase (below), and tea is surprisingly good with donut holes.
Not that many things aren’t good with dough covered in sugar, but you know…
Ingredients Needed to Make a Spiked Peach Iced Tea Cocktail
This easy drink recipe requires only 3 ingredients and no need to add tea bags. It’s seriously quick to make! And if you want to make a family-friendly version, just skip the vodka.
Unsweetened peach tea — We used Dunkin’ Donuts iced peach tea.
Vodka or peach vodka
Mint simple syrup — Or you can use Stevia with fresh mint.
Optional: Mint sprigs and peach slices — To garnish. Fesh mint is a must. It totally makes the drink, trust me!
How to Make a Peach Iced Tea Cocktail
For the cocktail, combine all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker to mix.
Then, serve over ice in a tall glass with a fresh mint sprig and peach slices garnished or mixed in.
Of course, I always encourage striped straws, but we used these DIY brass drink stirrers instead.
How to Make a Low Calorie Peach Tea Cocktail
The mint simple syrup can easily be replaced with Stevia for a lower calorie version of this recipe.
You can purchase it store bought. But it’s so easy to make your own homemade mint simple syrup for your cocktails and baked goods.
Note that the Dunkin’ Donuts Unsweetened Tea only has 5 calories per sixteen ounce serving.
Dunkin’ Donuts also makes a raspberry and blueberry tea, just in case peach flavor isn’t your jam.
How Long Does This Cocktail Keep?
If you made a batch of the spiked peach tea cocktail mixture and have leftovers, store the tea and refrigerate for up to 2-3 days.
Keep in mind that the alcohol will lose its potency so we highly recommend consuming it within 24 hours.
