Ingredients

  • 4 black tea bags
  • 8 sprigs of mint (about 3" each)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 4 peaches, 3 coarsely cut and the 4th cut into 1/2" dice
  • 4 oz Kentucky Bourbon

Preparation

  1. In a medium pot or kettle over medium heat, pour in one quart of water, cover and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add the tea bags and mint. Cover and let steep 10 minutes. Remove tea bags and stir in sugar, leaving mint in. Set aside to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, puree the 3 coarsely cut peaches in a blender or food processor with just enough water to break down (1/2 cup or less) until finely pureed.
  3. Remove the mint from the tea and pour it, the peach puree, and the bourbon into a pitcher or other bowl with a spout. Stir to mix.
  4. Put 1-2 pieces of diced peach into each popsicle mold and then pour the mixture in leaving just a little room at the top. Insert popsicle sticks and move to the freezer. It's best to freeze overnight, but depending on how big your popsicles are they may be hardened in 2-3 hours.
