Peach Cobbler Cocktail

A peach tea cocktail recipe which tastes just like the dessert peach cobbler!

Peach Tea

The smell of warm peach tea screams dessert. While I was experimenting with drink recipes, I knew I had a winner when the flavor tasted just like peach cobbler. Amazing!!

The inspiration for this recipe came from my peach iced tea. When Kate posted her recipe she mentioned you can add liquor to make a cocktail so I started experimenting. Even though the tea and the booze was good together it needed a little extra umph. The solution to any problem you are have when creating a drink is carbonation. In my opinion, it takes any cocktail over the top. Lemon lime soda is usually my go-to mixer when it comes to cocktails. It has the right on the sweetness, it isn’t overpowering, and the flavor is complementary to pretty much any drink you’re going to make.

Peach Iced Tea

Peach iced tea: sweet and refreshing for hot summer days; comforting and rich on cold winter nights.

“What the hell is pop?” could be my most favoritest Daryl Dixon quote ever!! It’s soda people. SODA! Even though I grew up in the Midwest, I still call it soda, thanks to my husband.
