Long Island Peach Tea

Long Island Peach Tea
5 mins preparation,
Serves 8

This is a fantastic take on a classic punch recipe, although it needs to be made the day before you want to drink it and left in the fridge to cool overnight. It’s better to buy over-ripe peaches that are soft and full of flavour rather than the hard specimens normally found in supermarkets.


4 Earl Grey tea bags
1 litre boiling water
300ml gin
170g caster sugar
2 ripe peaches, peeled, stoned and sliced
Juice of 2 lemons
1 litre chilled water
Lemon slices for garnish



Put the tea bags in a heat-proof dish and pour in the boiling water; leave to steep for two minutes


Remove the tea bags and add the gin, sugar, peaches and lemon juice


Once cooled, cover and place in the fridge until the next day 


Remove the peach slices and add 1 litre of chilled water


Garnish with lemon slices and serve in tall glasses with lots of ice


Serves 8
