Peach Mocktail

My mom’s birthday is New Year’s eve so we always have dinner and celebrate. This year I decided instead of just soda or sweet tea, I was going to serve a mocktail. The great thing about this mocktail is it can easily get boozy.


This is obviously really simple and forgiving.

For the tea I like to use orange pekot, 5 bags steeped in 3 cups of makes it plenty strong enough. Mix together the tea, peach nectar, and simple syrup. If you don’t want to bother with the simple syrup, instead try make 3 1/2 cups of tea dissolving 1/2 cup of sugar in it.

After all that has chilled and loved on each other it’s time to serve. Fill a glass with ice, about two thirds of the peach tea yummies then top off with a little club soda. Feeling fancy, add a sprig of mint or my favorite basil -the fresh peppery-ness makes me happy.

If we’re gonna make it boozy, I pick spiced rum every time. My favorite is Maggie’s Farm made in Pittsburgh PA! The husband – he picks whiskey.

Other fun things I want to try; switch out the one of the black tea bags for mint, peach, cinnamon or other flavors.

So happy mocktailing!
