If you were able to join us at our Sip n Shop event at Brightside Boutique (THANK YOU! We had a blast!), we hope you got to try the Bourbon Peach Tea we made with peaches from the Fell’s Point Farmer’s Market. Super easy, full of delicious summer peaches, and a real crowd pleaser—definitely the thing to bring to that end-of- summer BBQ. The sweet peach nectar masks the bourbon well, so watch out! If you didn’t get the chance to try it, we’re sharing the recipe for you to make at home. We think you’ll love it!
Bourbon Peach Punch
- 8 peaches. Aim for half ripe peaches and half firmer peaches (more on this later). We used a mix of yellow and white peaches, but you can also use yellow or white nectarines or any combination of the four, depending on your preference.
- 6 cups unsweetened black iced tea.
- 4 cups lemonade.
- 2 cups bourbon-of-choice. We recommend
Jim Beam or above, in terms of quality.
- 1 cup light brown sugar.
- 1 cup water.
Cut peaches into slices, and separate based on ripeness. Pour 1 cup bourbon into a container with slices from 3.5 firm peaches and set aside.
Pour 1 cup water, 1 cup brown sugar, and remaining firm peach slices into a saucepan and heat on low for 30 minutes. Add slices from 4 ripe peaches to a blender and mix with 1 cup lemonade. Blend until liquified. Pour mixture over sieve into a large punch container (ours was 2 gallons, with a spout for easy access) and strain peach purée.
Mix in brown sugar simple syrup, iced tea, remaining lemonade, remaining bourbon. Chill. Add ice and bourbon-soaked peaches to the mixture right before serving.
