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.
Jacque has one of my favorite blog columns right now — a whole series dedicated to state-themed cocktails! The Coaster 2 Coaster series has so far featured gems like Alaskan Sangria, The Ladybird of Texas, the Ohio Trail Mixer, The Nebraskan and the Watermelon Bourbon Slushie of Kentucky. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, and there are so many more great ones coming your way
I was excited when Jacque 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. You’ll also need to muddle in a few slices of ripe peach for an extra summery libation! (Yes, peaches, sweet tea AND whiskey. Could I get any more Southern?!) You’ll need to head to 5 O’Clock Fashionistas for the recipe. Cheers y’all! // susannah
