Peach Smash with Fresh Mint & White Tea


This White Tea With Peach and Mint Leaves is a perfect hit for summer time. This light taste of the white tea, the summer time feel of the peach, and the refreshing mint makes this a great choice for relaxing outside this summer.

For honey simple syrup:
½ cup honey
½ cup water
For cocktails: 
1 to 2 pyramid tea bags (or 1 to 2 teaspoons) loose leaf White Tea
1 ripe peach, cut into slices
8 fresh mint leaves
Juice from ¼ lemon
6 ice cubes
1 teaspoon honey simple syrup
4 ounces bourbon 
Prepare honey simple syrup: Mix honey and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer, stirring to dissolve honey. Remove from heat and let cool completely before using. You won’t need the whole amount for these two cocktails. Store the rest in a covered glass container in the refrigerator for up to a month. Use to sweeten other cocktails or iced tea.
Brew and chill tea: Brew 1 to 2 tea bags in 8 ounces (about 1 mug) water for about 3 minutes. (Use 2 tea bags if you want a slightly stronger tea flavor.) Discard tea bag(s), let tea cool to room temperature, then place tea in refrigerator to chill.
Prepare cocktails: Set aside 2 peach slices and 2 mint leaves for garnish. Divide remaining peach slices, mint leaves, and lemon juice between 2 cocktail glasses and muddle slightly to mash the peaches. Add 2 ounces of the brewed, chilled white tea to each glass. Then divide ice, honey simple syrup, and bourbon between the glasses, and mix. Garnish glasses with reserved peach slices and mint leaves.
