Peach Bellini Iced Tea


Just when I thought my husband had enough Olive Garden recipe requests, he throws another one at me... only this time it's for a drink! So going back to our typical Olive Garden dinner out, as the server takes our drink order, he always orders their 'Peach Bellini Iced Tea." Essentially, it's peach iced tea with a few frozen peach slices. He loves this stuff and easily drinks several glasses of this. Since I had an Italian inspired dinner planned, why not add this drink as a non-alcoholic alternative?

To my surprise, our guests loved the Peach Bellini Iced Tea as much as my husband. Among the four of us, we went through 2 large pitchers of it. It was definitely the drink winner of the night, leaving the red wine barely touched. If you're looking for a refreshing drink, perhaps for this upcoming holiday weekend, give this ice tea a try!

Thanks for the recipe. Is there a certain type if tea you should use? I think this would be sooo yummy for an end of summer party we are having this weekend.

Hi Nguyen Family Circus - thank you for your comment. I brewed regular Lipton tea and sweetened it to our tastes. You can use any tea of your choice - Liption, Green, etc. Enjoy!

I had the Peach Bellini Iced Tea at Olive Garden just yesterday. I commented to my waitress that I loved it and she said the manager would sell me a bottle of their syrup mix used to make this drink. It was a one liter bottle for $7.99. You simply mix one ounce with a glass of sweet tea and top with a few frozen peach slices. Awesome!

Hi Kay -Beth,
Could you please let me know what the 1-L bottle is called and who makes it? I would love to purchase it online. The drink is so refreshing and delicious. My family loves it! It would be a great treat. Many thanks!
