Here in the south, we drink iced tea all year long. Once summer rolls around with all its shindigs, showers and soirées, iced tea becomes the perfect base for special occasion drinks. Peach Tea Punch is a favorite of mine and I bet it will become a favorite of yours too.
Every day is a special occasion when you celebrate with my Peach Tea Punch. As soon as the weather warms up, we fire up the grill and head outside for family cookouts and a whole lot of fun.
Since Memorial Day is right around the corner, I’m planning on grilling out with the family and serving Peach Tea Punch as my signature drink. This Peach Tea Punch will be the star of my patriotic party.
Peach Tea Punch Begins with Milo’s Tea
My Peach Tea Punch is a breeze to make because I always begin with Milo’s Famous Sweet Tea. Milo’s Tea is THE beverage for summer entertaining and get-togethers. It’s available sweetened with pure cane sugar, no calorie or unsweet options. I can always count on Milo’s Tea because it’s fresh brewed, features natural ingredients and included no preservatives or added acids.
The Amazing Story Behind Milo’s Tea
Milo’s Tea was born in the south, just like me! Milo’s Tea Company is a third generation family-owned, certified woman-owned business located in Bessemer, AL.
Milo and Bea Carlton founded Milo’s in 1946. Milo had just returned from serving his country in World War II. They had the same philosophy then as they do now:
- Use high quality, fresh, natural ingredients
- Listen to your customers
- Never sacrifice taste
In 1989, Milo’s began selling their fresh brewed Famous Sweet Tea to local Birmingham grocery stores. Milo’s beverages can now be found in thousands of retailers across the United States.
Milo and Bea’s vision still guides the company today as they continue to source only natural ingredients. They fresh-brew all of their teas and never use colors, acids, additives or preservatives. Read the simple ingredient list on their juices and teas, and you will see the difference. Take one sip and you’ll taste the difference!
Helpful Hint: I found Milo’s at my local Walmart in the refrigerated juice section but they are available at lots of retailers. Find a store near you by using the store locator.
Peach Tea Punch
For this simple, yet refreshing Peach Tea Punch, you’ll need Milo’s Tea, peach nectar, ginger ale, sliced peaches (fresh or frozen), and mint leaves for garnish.
In a large punch bowl, stir together well chilled Milo’s tea, Ginger Ale, and peach nectar. Garnish with sliced peaches and mint leaves. Add an ice ring to keep the Peach Tea Punch well chilled.
Peach Ice Ring
In a bundt pan, add sliced peaches and mint leaves. Add enough ginger ale or distilled water to cover. Place in the freezer overnight.
Dip the ice ring in warm water for 5-10 seconds. Invert onto a sheet pan and add the ice ring to the punch.
