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!
