Choose from honey, agave syrup, sugar, or artificial sweetener. You can add however much sweetness as you wish to your spiced peach iced tea lemonade. So add a little bit, taste, then add more if needed.

This spiked peach iced tea lemonade can be prepared a day ahead (without the vodka). Actually it will keep for two or three days in a covered pitcher in the refrigerator. Add the vodka before serving as well as your preferred garnish.

Try adding more fruit such as blueberries, pineapple or strawberries. Cucumber slices also work in this refreshing summer cocktail. If you want to change the alcohol, you could use vanilla vodka or even try something different like peach schnapps.

Another idea is to freeze the mixture and make boozy popsicles. However, if you want to try this don’t put too much alcohol in the mix, else they won’t freeze! And then you’ll have peach tea slush instead of a popsicle.

History of Sweet Tea

You already know tea has a long and fascinating history but what about sweet tea and especially iced tea? It’s believed tea plants were introduced to the US by a French botanist in the 1700s.

Very soon iced tea recipes appeared in recipe books. And guess what – they all had alcohol in them! That’s right, this hard spiked iced tea lemonade is more vintage than you might think!

These green tea punches were known as Regent’s Punch. They were made from green tea, although today black tea seems to be the more popular option. These centuries old boozy iced tea recipes typically included brewed green tea, sugar, cream, and a bottle of claret (red wine from Bordeaux) or a bottle of champagne.

The first sweet tea recipe dates back to 1879. In this recipe, green tea is stirred into boiling water then left to brew for several hours. After that the mixture is strained and served with ice and sugar, along with optional lemon juice.

The first sweet tea recipe made with black tea dates back to 1904. Prohibition lasted for 13 years. Since alcohol was illegal at the time, iced tea recipes surged in popularity and pretty much every Southern cookbook from that period included at least one sweet iced tea recipe.

Since then of course iced tea has gone from strength to strength (especially in the South!) and there are many varieties to try. There are plenty of bottled options or you can experiment with your own recipes. I highly recommend this hard spiked iced tea lemonade recipe for a warm summer evening though!
