Recipe: Peach Nectar Beverages – Three Ways


I like to look for food items which I have never tried and then search for interesting recipes which use them. Such is the case with a carton of peach nectar I purchased on sale at the grocery store. When I bought it, I had no idea how I might use it, but I knew that I would find some cool new recipes in which to use it!

Here are three great cold beverages which use peach nectar. Each recipe features this lovely nectar in a different way. 

  • The Peachy Mimosa uses orange juice and sparkling wine,
  • The Sparkling Peach Punch uses ginger ale and lemon-lime soda,
  • The Peached Iced Tea used brewed tea and lemon juice.

There’s something for everyone in this trio of peach nectar beverages.
