Governor’s Mansion Summer Peach Tea Punch

Several months prior to Matilda’s “Tea for 2” party, I received an issue of Southern Living magazine that was totally dedicated to different types of sweet teas.  I thought, “Perfect!”, it was just what I needed for my little lady’s party.  I decided on “Governor’s Mansion Summer Peach Tea Punch” and I was not disappointed!

This tea punch is a combination of peach nectar, iced tea, simple syrup, ginger ale, club soda and more!  It’s a great way to add some festiveness to your basic iced tea and really take things to another level!

Makes 1 gallon
Recipe from Southern Living Magazine
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

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.

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.

Pour chilled tea mixture into a punch bowl or pitcher. Stir in ginger ale and club soda just before serving.  Garnish with fresh, sliced peaches.


We served our Summer Peach Tea Punch in mason jars with straws, but it would also be beautiful in a wine glass or champagne flute.  This iced tea is perfect for a warm summer day or a “Tea for 2” party!

    How do you make the simple syrup?

  5. I make this every summer for our family reunion. I add a 5th of vodka or rum and freeze it for a scoopable slush from the freezer. It’s a huge hit!!
