Georgia Spiced Tea

This cocktail is light and refreshing and was inspired by the thought of what would happen when a Mint Julep meets a Peach Iced Tea.

I have an abundance of peaches at the moment that have all come from my very own organic Peach tree. This year I had a bumper crop and got to harvest almost all the peaches bar a few that the birds got to. So it has been peach madness at our house. Not that I mind cause damn these peaches are good, so sweet and juicy… who wouldn’t have the thought to muddle them up and shake them up with splashes of Wild Turkey American Honey. I know I did!!

This spectacular cocktail is best enjoyed in a comfy chair on the back deck watching the sun go down after a hard days work. Now you cant get more Kentucky than that? And don’t worry if you don’t have any Wild Turkey American Honey at your pad you can swap it for regular bourbon.
Enjoy.
