Peach-Basil Iced Tea

Iced tea

Iced tea is such a staple here that Dolly Parton’s Steel Magnolias character called it the “house wine of the South.” If you love the staple, you’ll enjoy this seasonal twist with just five ingredients from Southern Living. 


  • 2 family-size tea bags
  • 1 cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 cups peach nectar


Bring 8 cups water to a boil in a large saucepan. Pour boiling water over tea bags and basil in a pitcher; cover and steep 6 minutes. Remove and discard tea bags and basil. Add sugar, stirring until dissolved; stir in peach nectar. Serve over crushed ice and garnish with fresh basil sprigs.
