Iced tea is just a regular part of life for us Southerners. I remember as a kid going to ” The Royal Grandma's” house and she always, I mean always, had a tall glass pitcher full of Lipton® Iced Tea waiting for us. It was just what we needed when we came inside from playing outside on a hot summer day. And now that I'm a grown up, things haven't changed much! I still love a tall glass of cold Lipton® Iced Tea on a hot day and one of my favorite ways to add flavor to my tea is to add sliced peaches. Oh, yum!! If you haven't tried that you definitely need to! I have even included a recipe for my Homemade Peach Tea with my homemade peach simple syrup.
One of my favorite drinks for summer time BBQ's and family gatherings is Lipton® Iced Tea. In all honesty, a BBQ just isn't the same without my iced tea! Delicious, natural Lipton® Iced Tea improves every meal and gives all of our summer activities a tasty boost. And because it's made with real tea leaves and zero (!!!) calories I can feel good about indulging in my favorite summer drink! Now that my son is out of school we have been making it a point to spend more time outdoors. Playing corn-hole, croquet, walking the dogs and doing lots of grilling.
Speaking of grilling, have you ever tried grilled corn with Parmesan, garlic salt and pepper? Oh my goodness, it's absolutely delicious! I won't eat my grilled corn any other way! It's just another way I like to bring flavor to the table. Next time you're grilling corn I highly recommend changing things up a bit by adding parmesan, garlic salt and pepper!

Homemade Peach Tea:
3 Peaches (1 for slicing)
1 cup of Organic Sugar
1 cup of Water
1-2 Lipton Tea Bags
- Brew 1- 2 Lipton Tea Bags then pour into a glass pitcher and refrigerate.
- Dice up two peaches.
- Add the diced peaches, sugar and water to a small sauce pan and bring to a boil.
- Lower the heat and smash the peaches as you stir.
- Once the sugar is dissolved, remove from the heat and let it sit for 30 mins for the peaches to infuse the water. This makes your simple syrup.
- Pour your simple syrup mixture into a glass container using a fine mesh strainer to strain the peaches.
- You can add all of your simple syrup to your pitcher of tea or simply add to a single serving.
- Pour over ice and add sliced peaches.
