Is everyone melting in the humid heat as much as I am? One of my New Year goals was to start a cocktail feature on here but then one thing led to another and I became pregnant so cocktails will have to wait a while. The hot weather and my pregnant state is the ideal opportunity for me to create mocktails and other delicious non-alcoholic drinks and if you get really desperate you can always adapt my recipes and a few shots of something more grown up into them.
I am really enjoying iced tea at the moment so I am searching for ways to make various flavours the first in my fruity tea series is this peach iced tea.
you will need;
4 ripe peaches
3tsp rose green tea
1ltr boiling water
- Make 1 litre of tea, allow this to steep for only 3 minutes so that the tea does not become too bitter.
- Strain the tea into a large glass or ceramic bowl, plastic bowls can alter the delicate flavour of the tea. Whilst the tea is still hot dissolve the sugar into it.
- Peel the 4 peaches and cut the flesh from around the stone and leave in the tea. Cover with cling film and leave to cool.
- Once the tea has cooled strain the tea to remove the peach pulp. Decant into a bottle or a jug and serve cold
