Twist on iconic Southern sweet tea.  Bourbon,  peach schnapps, peach jam and fresh peach wedges makes this summer cocktail an essential for porch sipping.


  • 1 ½ cups of unsweetened iced tea
  • 2 tablespoons of Friends Drift Inn Bourbon Peach Cobbler Jam, warmed to thin
  • 2 ounces of Kentucky Bourbon
  • 1 ½ ounces of Peach Schnapps
  • Peach wedges for garnish
  • Ice



  1. Prepare peach wedge garnishes. 
  2. In a cocktail shaker, add tea, jam, bourbon, schnapps, and ice.
  3. Shake to chill.  Condensation should develop on outside of shaker.
  4. Strain if you must. 
  5. Pour into a pint mason jar.
  6. Add extra handful of ice.
  7. Garnish with peach wedge.  (We leave the skin on)

Serving Suggestions

Sweet Tea is perfect for grill parties, Sunday suppers, back porch sipping and Saturday tailgating parties. 

A fun summer menu might include an arugula salad with peaches and almonds, Southern BBQ, bourbon peach baked beans, and of course banana pudding.



If you are making a big batch, stir the jam into hot tea while tea is cooling.  For every 3 cups of unsweet tea, use 3 tablespoons of jam.  (There are 4 cups in a quart)

Like all our recipes, this mixed drink was developed with Friend Drift Inn Bourbon Peach Cobbler Jam.  Other products may not produce the same result.

Variations – Charlie likes a quick squeeze of lime and a lime garnish in addition to the peach wedge.
