Fiddle-dee-dee! Nothing says “Southern” like the combination of peaches, iced tea, and bourbon. All you need is a front porch. The peach brings out the fruitiness of the bourbon and adds a delicate sweetness.
1 1/2 ounces bourbon
1/4 ounce peach schnapps
2 ounces peach nectar
1 ounce unsweetened iced tea
1 dash peach bitters (optional)
Peach slice, for garnish
In a shaker filled with ice, combine the bourbon, schnapps, peach nectar, iced tea, and bitters, if using. Shake the mixture vigorously and strain it into a tall glass with ice. Garnish with the peach slice and serve.
