Summer Recipe: Governor’s Mansion Peach Tea Punch

Image Credit: Southern Living


I used the Memorial Day holiday as an excuse to try out a few new recipes.  In last month’s issue of Southern Living magazine, I saw this recipe for Governor’s Mansion Summer Peach Tea Punch.  It looked so lovely and enticing!  So, yesterday I decided to try it out on my BBQ guests.  It was a hit.  I even heard rumblings that it would make a great base for a cocktail…

I made some modifications (mostly out of poor planning), but it turned out deliciously.  For example, I used a Mango-Passion Fruit Tea that I had on hand, and I omitted the lemonade (because I forgot to put it in the shopping cart – likewise with the Club Soda).  Here’s the recipe!


  • YIELD: Makes about 1 gal.
  • COURSE: Beverages, Beverages, Nonalcoholic


  • 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 wedges


1. 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.

2. 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.

If you try it, let me know how it turns out! What are your favorite summer recipes?
