Bourbon-Spiked Peach Tea
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 cup sugar
2 cups peeled and sliced fresh peaches, divided (about 2 medium peaches)
1 cup bourbon
4 cups freshly brewed iced tea, unsweetened
In a saucepan over high heat combine the water, lemon juice, sugar, and 1 cup of peaches. Allow the mixture to come to a boil for 2 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat, and let the mixture cool to room temperature. Once the peach syrup has cooled, pour it into a 2-quart pitcher. Add the bourbon, the remaining 1 cup peaches, and the iced tea. Stir to combine and serve over ice.
