Y'all know we love our tea here in Georgia. The sweeter the better. And lots of ice. Please, don't skimp on the ice. It's hot down here for goodness sake!
I couldn't resist sharing a peachy concoction here on the blog for peach week. This tea doesn't contain any alcohol but the added fizz gives it a fun and refreshing twist for summer parties. Sip and enjoy!
