It’s finally Friday. And thank goodness. If your week was anything like mine, you’re going to need a cocktail or two to toast to the end the week!

Might I recommend this Peach Tea Old-Fashioned? I created this cocktail for my friend Jacque’s blog, 5 O’Clock Fashionistas (which is no longer live).

Jacque used to have one of my favorite blog columns — a whole series dedicated to state-themed cocktails! I was excited when she asked me to work on a North Carolina-themed cocktail.

We drink so much sweet tea down here, I didn’t think it would be fair to leave it out.

For the Peach Tea Old-Fashioned cocktail, you’ll infuse tea bags right into the whiskey for a strong tea flavor. I love using tea in old-fashioneds, which you can see in this Chai Old-Fashioned Cocktail that has chai tea ice cubes.

You’ll also need to muddle in a few slices of ripe peach for an extra summery libation! Peaches are a favorite cocktail ingredient, as evidenced in this Ginger Peach Bourbon Smash and this Honey Peach Old-Fashioned.

(Yes, peaches, sweet tea AND whiskey. Could I get any more Southern?!) Cheers y’all! // susannah
