The Olive Garden Peach Iced Tea is a refreshing non-alcoholic drink that is very popular at the restaurant. You can make the Olive Garden Peach Iced Tea at home.
Everyone goes to the Olive Garden to enjoy eating Italian-family style. If you go there for a summer lunch, you will probably want something light and refreshing to drink, like iced tea. The Olive Garden offers you a choice of iced teas that go very well with summer lunches. One of my favorites is peach iced tea, although it doesn’t appear to be on the Olive Garden’s menu anymore. However, you can easily make this iced tea and enjoy it at home.
Peach Syrup Makes this Iced Tea Special
The Olive Garden uses Monin’s gourmet syrups to flavor several of its drinks. Using Monin’s peach syrup is an easy way to make this peach iced tea, but if you prefer to make your own syrup with fresh peaches, you can. I’ve also discovered two other products – Kern’s Peach Nectar and Torani Peach Syrup – which also make a delicious peach iced tea.
Peach Iced Tea is A Refreshing Drink to go With Summer
There is something extra refreshing about this iced tea, and there is no reason why you can’t enjoy fresh homemade peach iced tea all through the summer. It adds a perfect, peachy touch to outdoor barbeques. The Olive Garden is offering a variation on this tea called Bellini Peach-Raspberry Iced Tea, which also sounds delicious so I have provided instructions for this tea also.
