In celebration of Bee Season, Garden Bouquets and Summertime Sipping, I have a giveaway for your summer entertaining!
And I’m serving this giveaway with a recipe for refreshing beverage for summer! This Summer Peach Tea Punch recipe can also *bee* easily adjusted and mixed as a cocktail for a party or summer soirée.
A summery twist on an Arnold Palmer, Summer Peach Tea Punch is refreshing and ideal for serving for a bridal or baby shower.
Summer Peach Tea Punch, recipe courtesy Southern Living
Makes 1 gallon
3 family-size tea bags
2 cups loosely packed fresh mint leaves
1 (33.8-oz.) bottle peach nectar
1/2 (12-oz.) can frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
1/2 cup Simple Sugar Syrup
1 (1-liter) bottle ginger ale, chilled
1 (1-liter) bottle club soda, chilled
Garnish: fresh peach slices, mint, and/ or lemons
Bring 4 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan; add tea bags and mint leaves. Boil 1 minute; remove from heat. Cover and steep 10 minutes.
Discard tea bags and mint. Pour into a 1-gal. container; add peach nectar, lemonade concentrate, and Simple Sugar Syrup. Cover and chill 8 to 24 hours.
Pour chilled tea mixture into a punch bowl or pitcher. Stir in ginger ale and club soda just before serving.
To make a cocktail version of this punch, add a combination of Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka and Peach Schnapps or Firefly Peach Tea Flavored Vodka. A general guideline for mixing a cocktail punch is 1 part alcohol to 3 parts mixer, but use the ratio you prefer for your crowd. You can find a printable recipe, here.
For your summer entertaining, I’m giving away a Pfaltzgraff Ribbed Glass Beverage Dispenser with Metal Stand, 4 Quattro Stagioni Canning Jars and a Mary Lake-Thompson flour sack towel with Bee Skep design, to one winner.
The beehive styled glass base of the beverage dispenser adds a seasonal touch to your table, buffet, or garden setting! It’s elevated on a metal stand so your guests can serve themselves and it holds 2-1/2 gallons of your favorite beverage~ lemonade, tea, punch, or sangria!
I’m a bee and jar lover so these Italian Quattro Stagioni Canning Jars have double the appeal! The 17 ounce jars come in a pack of 4 with lids and are designed for canning. I’ve had a set I’ve used for a couple of years at the table with flowers and for sipping. I picked up another set to give away when I was buzzing around HomeGoods a couple of weeks ago.
I love the embossed bee skep design, bees and butterflies on the jars, ideal for a just-picked bouquet from the garden!
I used to sell Mary Lake-Thompson products when I had a retail shop and love her flour sack towels with the adorable art work and designs.
