This recipe made me so happy (and not because it was alcoholic). I have been wanting to make a Peach Bellini for a while and knew that it would be the perfect opportunity to create another tea cocktail. I think this one might be my favorite overall that I have done. Dollar Tea Club sent me some of their blends to experiment with, and I chose their Peaches and Dreams tea for this cocktail.
I ended up making this in bulk for a small family gathering to celebrate my birthday, so the ratios represent that. This recipe is incredibly simple but was a great way to make a cocktail out of tea that you may already have on hand.
Here are the ingredients:
- 1 Bottle of Chilled Champagne
- 3 tbsp Peaches & Dreams
- 2 Cups Frozen Peaches
An hour before, use three to four tablespoons of loose leaf tea for a pitcher of near boiling water (mine held about 6 cups of water) and steep for 5 minutes. When done, place the frozen peaches in the tea to assist in cooling off and for additional peach flavor. When serving, fill the champagne glass with 2 pieces of peaches, half champagne and half peaches & dream tea. Enjoy!!
For more sweetness, you can add honey to the tea after you have added the frozen peaches. Or alternatively, add more tea than champagne.
And as always, remember that you can use this code for $1 off: “REFYR89J3QRAC“ (disclaimer: it gives me $1 of store credit).
I love making tea cocktails and finding ways of making some classic cocktails with tea!! I really enjoyed this recipe and hope you do as well!! Happy Brewing!
