SO refreshing! Try this lemonade-iced tea cocktail with fresh peaches, mint and vodka. Just FOUR ingredients + water and ice cubes. Cheers!
Happy Friday, y’all! I hope it’s been a good week for you.
To honor the already scorchin’ temps in Texas, I wanted to share a delicious, summery cocktail with you today! It’s so smooth and luscious, easy-as-sin to stir together, and makes you want to sit on the back porch with a tall glass brimming with fresh peaches and lemons. Doesn’t that sound so ideal?
Here in Austin, we’re just about in peach season so I grabbed a big basketful to share with you. Aren’t they just the prettiest things?
A couple of lemon and peach slices plop into each glass, along with tea, lemonade, fresh mint, and a heaping 1/2 cup vodka. Yep, we know how to start a summer party at this house!
It’s just about the most refreshing, delicious thing in the world when it’s sticky hot outside. That, and successfully trying to wriggle your entire body into your freezer (been there). Sorta like an Arnold Palmer with a little sass…
Make a big pitcher-full of these tipsy teas for your next spring or summer party, and have a cheers for me! Feel free to change up the peaches and lemons for oranges and limes, or maybe even a handful of berries. Get creative and make this delicious drink your own!
Tipsy Lemonade and Peach Iced Tea
- 2 large tea bags for iced tea
- 1/2 cup boiling water
- 8 fresh mint sprigs
- 4 cups lemonade made from frozen concentrate
- 1/2 cup vodka
- Ice cubes
- slices from 1 lemon and 1 peach, for garnish
- In a medium bowl, add tea bags and pour over boiling water. Let steep 4 minutes. Carefully discard tea bags.
- Place mint sprigs in a large pitcher; mash with a muddler or handle of a wooden spoon until slightly bruised. Pour in tea, lemonade, and vodka. Chill in refrigerator before serving.
- Fill 8 highball glasses with ice. Pour tea among glasses. Garnish with lemon and peach slices.
I’m getting thirsty by looking at your beautiful iced tea! I love peach in tea, and this year I haven’t had a single peach yet. Can’t wait for peach picking in a few weeks! I’m going to make this with fresh peach. :)
Beautiful! This looks like a wonderfully refreshing drink (especially with that kick of vodka!)
This. looks. so. good. Perfect drink for the Texas heat!! (P.S. Texas weather this week?!! In Dallas we’ve had 90 degrees and sunny, rain, a tornado, then back to 90 and sunny. ?!)
Georgia, these photos are stunning. I want to reach through my screen and grab a glass…or two. The temps are rising here in Baltimore, too. Enjoy your weekend!
Perfectly perfect for our already hot days here in Tennessee. Usually around here folks add Jack to their iced tea cocktails, but I do believe the vodka would be much better and lighter. I am trying your recipe this weekend!
Oh my!! Wow is that pretty!
1/2 cup of vodka per glass huh? I’ll be right over!!!!
This sounds positively delightful! I’m always grossed out by those tea-flavored vodkas. It’s like, why don’t you just make tea – and add vodka? Heh. Can’t wait to try this one!
Haha! 1/2 cup vodka for EIGHT glasses. But we could change that up for the next happy hour! ;)
This is such a perfect Texas drink! It isn’t as hot here in Montreal, but it’s warm enough to enjoy this drink. Great recipe!
Given the scorching heat in Dallas, this should be my goto beverage!
Just became a new follower!! Love this drink!! Perfect for a summer bbq!!!
Hope you swing by and check us out!
Gorgeous! I want one too! Beautiful clicks, as always!
PEACHES! I loooooove peaches! Can’t wait for the to arrive on our stores! This tea sounds amazing!

What a beautiful and absolutely deliciously inviting post! Cant wait to try some!!
Gorgeous photos, your tea looks so refreshing!
Georgia, the photography is stunning! Tack sharp, gorgeous styling, and of course, the recipe isn’t half bad either :)
Oh, how I love me some Arnold Palmers in the summer…or, anytime! However, I think I need to “sass it up a bit” Georgia style! Absolutely gorgeous food styling here, too, girl. You truly inspire me! xo
Being born and raised in Texas, I can so relate to your post. My favorite memory of peaches in Texas, is homemade peach ice cream on the 4th of July. Fantastic photos…really enjoyed your post.
I just found you via your comment on Bakeaholic Mama’s page, and I am SOOOO glad I did. I love love LOVE your pictures. So much life! Looks like the perfect drink for a hot day like you are having. Cheers!
Beautiful and refreshing Georgia! I’m so envious that you are nearing peach season. We won’t see that here in NY until August :(
Love it! Thanks for recipe :)
This looks like such an amazing summer drink!
I totally want to get tipsy on this drink! It’s just gorgeous!!
Ohhhh the pictures of this drink are simply stunning and makes you just want to reach out and grab it! The first peaches of the season are in at our local orchard and I think a trip there is now mandatory to make this drink. It’s 9:30 in the morning here…is it too early to drink? lol
These images are beautiful, Georgia. This is definitely my kind of summer drink!
Oh my gahhhh. This is heaven in a glass! I must have these!
This has to be my new summer drink. And your photography, Georgia – you even make brown drinks look good!!!!! I am always in awe of your food styling and perfect lighting :)
I need this tea in my life my friend, the only kind I want to drink :D
Oh yes! No words except that I need a stiff one and I need it right now!
Love the sass! And , GORGEOUS photos! See you in Austin! :)
Well this will definitely give you a buzz on a hot summers day and make you forget the heat and humidity. I’m not much of a drinker since I can’t hold it too well but I know a lot of people that would love this. Hope you weren’t anywhere near the tornadoes that recently hit there. We are expecting those tomorrow. Great photos by the way.
I love sweet tea vodka, so no doubt that I will love this tipsy lemonade, too! It’s so perfect for the summer!
Just beautiful! I have say, we are big iced tea/lemonade fans and a little vodka sure wouldn’t hurt. Beautiful post!
This looks so good. So refreshing for the summer.. kinda like Long Island Iced Tea minus the tequila. :-)
Lovely tea! Perfect for summer :)
Peaces are not in season here yet… when they are… I’ll be making a batch of this!
This looks so refreshing! I can’t wait for peaches to be in season – another few months away here.
These remind me of Arnold Palmers. Love the idea of this! Perfect for a summer day!
I love your glasses–so cute! This would be perfect for a Memorial Day picnic. Or any day, really. :)
So pretty. I can’t wait until peach season!
Pretty!! And I love that it’s “tipsy” :D
Mmmmm. This sounds SO good!!!
Oooh, so pretty! This looks wonderful!
