Story Time

Jatin is passionate about making cold beverages or mocktails at home. He tried so many recipes using different fruits and veggies. During the summertime, he would always make some cold beverages while we have our dinner. It feels fancy and makes dinner on a hot summer day really enjoyable and romantic. Every time he would mix some fruit, lemon juice, salt, black salt, maple syrup, and soda and a new drink is ready. He has so many ideas that it feels like I am sitting in a restaurant and getting to try a new beverage every time.

Like I always say, homemade is the best. Making it is extremely simple and easy and you are ensured of good quality ingredients too. So, instead of buying syrup or squash from the stores, try making these healthy beverages at home for yourself, your family, and your friends.

What is a Mocktail?

Mocktail is a drink, a cold beverage that is made without using any alcohol. A cocktail on the other hand is a drink that requires alcohol in it. Mocktails are very popular in India since we have many people who do not prefer to consume alcohol there. That is why you can easily find different kinds of fancy mocktails there.

Spiced Peach Ice Tea

What is Ice Tea (or Iced Tea)?

As the name suggests, Ice Tea or Iced Tea is tea with ice. It is a cold beverage that you can make with any kind of tea – black tea, fruit tea, herbal tea, green tea, yogi tea, etc. You just need to brew some tea without milk, add some flavors of choice like lemon, strawberry, peach, blueberry, etc., some sweetener, and ice, and that is it. Your refreshing summer drink is ready to be slurped.

These days you get store-bought iced tea also in cans, bottles, and even in powdered form which you can simply mix in water and drink. But are they really healthy to drink? These ready-made, store-bought cold drinks are always loaded with sugar and nasty ingredients. So, it is better to stay away from them. On the other hand, making iced tea at home is so much easy and quick that you really don’t need to buy it from the stores.

How to Store Homemade Peach Sauce?

Store the homemade peach sauce in a clean air-tight container. Refrigerate and use for up to 2 weeks.

Can we freeze the Peach sauce?

Yes. Of course. When peaches are in season, you can make a big batch of this sauce and store it in the freezer for months. Just thaw before use.

You can even pour it into an ice cube tray and freeze it. That way it would be easy to make a drink.

Can we store brewed tea in the refrigerator?

I would recommend making it fresh but if you want to prep ahead or you have leftover tea then obviously you can refrigerate the brewed tea and use it within 2 days.

Easy Swaps

  1. Sugar – use any sweetener of your choice.
  2. Classic Yogi Tea – If you can not find yogi tea, use a blend of spices – cinnamon, ginger, cloves, cardamom, and black pepper. Or, you can use black tea or any other tea of your choice.

More Summer Drinks – just as good

  1. Tamarind Ginger Lemonade
  2. Strawberry-Basil Mocktail
  3. Chilli Mango Mojito (Aam Panna Mojito)
  4. Blueberry-Rosemary Mocktail
  5. Orange Lemonade
  6. Blueberry Cucumber Ice Tea

Grab all the ingredients because you are ready to make this quick and easy spiced peach iced tea recipe at home. I am sure you and your family will enjoy it. And when you serve this cold summer beverage to your guests, be ready to grab all the appreciation. Everybody will love it and won’t even guess that it took just a few minutes to prepare.

Spiced Peach Ice Tea (No Caffeine) | Quick & Refreshing Summer Drink

Refreshing. Cooling. Fancy.

I randomly tried peach iced tea with some spice blend (classic yogi tea) instead of black tea and Oh My God! The combination of cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger with fresh peaches is divine. This spice blend made the tea even more delectable. 

Forget Cola. Try this homemade iced tea.

Steps

Peach Sauce
  1. In a saucepan, add roughly cut peaches, sugar, and salt. Cook on high flame until they start to release their juice. 
  2. Keep stirring in between.
  3. Once they release their juice, lower the flame and keep mashing from the back of the spoon until they become soft and get a sauce-like consistency. It takes just a few minutes. 
  4. Once it is all soft and mashed up, remove from the flame and strain using a sieve. The consistency will be thick and easily pourable.
  5. You can even blend everything in a mixer.
  6. Cool completely and store in an air-tight container. Refrigerate and use within 2 weeks. 
  7. It makes around 10 glasses of iced tea.
Brewed Tea

  2. Once it comes to a boil, switch off the flame, close the lid, and let it cool down.
  3. Strain using a sieve and keep it aside.
Serving (per glass)
  1. In a glass, add peach sauce and fill the glass with ice. 
  2. Add brewed tea and finish it off with some soda on top. Soda adds a nice zing to the tea but it is completely optional. 
  3. Top it up with some thinly sliced peaches and a sprig of fresh peppermint. Enjoy this fancy homemade drink forget about summer :)
