Bourbon Peach Tea Cocktail

It’s National Bourbon Heritage Month! Did you know? It seems fitting that September gets this honor, just in time for cooler weather and football season. I was inspired to make this drink recipe after cocktails at Forklift. They have very creative and awesome-tasting cocktails. A cocktail with bourbon, sweet tea, and peaches is perfect for celebrating the South and National Bourbon Heritage Month.

Goodness, this cocktail recipe is delicious! In fact, you’ll be making it over and over.

Bourbon Peach Tea Method and Tips

  1. The process for this cocktail was simple. I first made the tea and refrigerated it.
  2. Then, I made a peach simple syrup to incorporate the peach flavor in it. I strained the simple syrup to remove the peach pulp. This was my preference, and you can skip straining if you prefer.
  3. You can combine the tea and peach simple syrup now if you prefer. I did not, since everyone has a different preference for sweetness in their drinks.
  4. The ratio I like best for this drink is 1/4 peach simple syrup, 1/4 bourbon, and 1/2 tea and ice. Make it to your liking.
  5. I also used Woodford Reserve Bourbon. It has a smooth, clean taste and smooth finish. It’s actually really good all by itself and extra good mixed in this Bourbon Peach Tea Cocktail.

HOW TO MAKE A SIMPLE SYRUP

Simple Syrup is an essential ingredient for many cocktails. It sweetens drinks without having the grit of granulated sugar. I stick with the basic 1:1 ratio of sugar to water.

  1. In a saucepan combine equal parts water and sugar.
  2. Heat over medium-high heat until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  3. Cool to room temperature.
  4. Transfer the simple syrup to a glass storage container with a tight-fitting lid.

    I love peaches and this peach cocktail is delicious. The sweetness of the peach helps balance the bite of the whisky. Perfect!
