Tea is a traditional addition in vintage punches. The ginger peach tea in this delicate autumnal punch weaves in nicely with gentle flavor. There is no biting bitterness one usually experiences with more abrasive, pungent teas. Just Peachy Punch is sweet with light lemon notes. Honey adds a nice cider spin to the flavor profile. The flavor fuses a delicate balance between the Riesling’s lilting apple notes and the punch’s sweet citrus flavors.
Just Peachy Punch serves six. It is excellent for fall gatherings. Make this recipe ahead of time, refrigerate and serve when ready.
