Peach and Raspberry Sun Tea

Peach and Raspberry Sun Tea is not your ordinary tea. It’s deliciously refreshing with a light sweetness from a cilantro simple syrup.

Kitchen tools and equipment needed:

Summer tea time:

It’s just about summer so you know what that means, right? Time to schedule your “tea” time!

In my book, there’s no better way to do that than with this Peach and Raspberry Sun Tea that is sweetened with a delicious cilantro simple syrup!

Aaaah!!! Ice cold and refreshing.

This tea is sure to (whet/wet) your whistle on a hot summer’s day.

How long will this fruit and berry sun tea take from start to finish:

Roughly 8½ hours.

The bulk of that time (8 hours) is for allowing the tea to bask in the sunshine. And the last half an hour is for chilling the tea, and adding the ice so it becomes ice cold and refreshing.

How sweet to make your sun tea?

I tend to like my tea mildly sweet so I didn’t go overboard with the cilantro simple syrup.

Feel free however to double what I added if you prefer your tea on the sugary side.

Can granulated sugar be replaced with something healthier?

Yes. Great question!!

If you’re looking to cut the calories way back, you can easily switch out the granulated cane sugar, and substitute an all-natural monk fruit sweetener which (in most cases) can be used as a 1:1 replacement for the granulated sugar. However, check the packaging on the replacement depending on the type you use.

When is National Iced Tea Day?

Did you know that June 10th is National Iced Tea Day?

Well, you do now!

Time to celebrate with a tall, frosty one, don’t you think?

 

How to easily pit a peach:

What if I don’t like cilantro?

Then feel free to muddle up some fresh mint, basil, lavender, or even a touch of rosemary to make the simple syrup.

Get creative, or leave the fresh herbs out of the simple syrup entirely.

Can alcohol be added to this sun tea if desired?

Yes, sure.

Just make sure you add it right before serving in the individual glasses and mix it in well.

I wouldn’t suggest brewing it in the sun with alcohol already added. Just my personal preference.

Some alcohol suggestions, if desired:

Rum, Vodka, Peach Vodka, Chambord, Tequila…you get the idea.

Special precautions if “spiking” your sun tea:

As always, PLEASE DRINK RESPONSIBLY, AND MAKE SURE TO MARK THE SPIKED TEA WELL SO THAT THE YOUNG ONES DON’T ACCIDENTALLY GET INTO THE WRONG TEA.

Additional recipe using fresh peaches:

*Peaches Foster (shown below and featured in the video)

What do you get when you take a classic dessert like bananas foster and swap out tree-ripened Georgia peaches? Three guesses. Peaches Foster, of course!!

*No-Churn Peach and Pecan Ice Cream (not Shown)

No ice cream maker? No problem! This no-churn peach pecan ice cream is just like biting into a fresh and juicy summertime peach!

*Fresh Peach Crostata (shown below)

This fresh peach crostata is similar to biting into a fresh ripe peach except it has a flaky piecrust shell, and it’s best served warm and with a fork.

*Low-Sugar Fresh Peach and Sage Sorbet (not shown)

Refreshing Low Sugar Fresh Peach Sorbet with Sage is a flavorful frozen treat with an unexpected hint of garden sage and luscious summertime peaches. 

*Peach and Raspberry Sun Tea with Cilantro Simple Syrup (shown below) THIS IS THE PLACE!!
