Peach Simple Syrup Iced Tea with Mint

Sweet Tea is a truly Southern tradition, not only during the summer but year round, you will find people sipping it on the porch or serving to friends gathered around the kitchen table. A wonderful alternative to serving pre-sweetened tea is to create a simple syrup and allow guest to add to their taste preference.

Simple syrup is just as the name says, a simple syrup. It is equal parts water and sugar gently heated until the sugar dissolves – and perfect for using in cold beverage as the sugar is already in liquid form it quickly mixes into the existing liquid. I love to create new flavors of simple syrup to be used in iced tea, cocktails or to be poured over berries for dessert.

For a recent event at the West Elm in Hyde Park Village with Tabitha Blue, of Fresh Mommy Blog, – here we are before everyone arrived – I made up a double batch of Georgia Peach Simple Syrup to serve alongside iced Earl Grey tea, fresh mint sprigs and additional peach slices. The attendees enjoyed it along with a Fresh Herb White Bean Dip while they made Personalized Rosemary Napkin Rings {DIY feature coming soon} – both perfect for Summer Entertaining!


Georgia Peach Simple Syrup
  1. 1 cup organic cane sugar
  2. 1 cup water
  3. 2 ripe Georgia peaches, thinly chopped
  1. In a small saucepan bring sugar, water and peaches to a simmer. Lower heat and stir gently to allow sugar to fully dissolve.
  2. Using a wooden spoon to crush the peaches to infuse the flavor and color to the sugar mixture.
  3. Remove from heat and let steep for 20-30 minutes.
  4. Pour into a bottle or container over a fine mesh strainer to strain out peaches.
  5. Reserve the peaches for later use in an air tight container placed in the refrigerator for up to a week.
