    Peach Teaser. It says a lot. Key ingredients are celebrated, it suggests a before and after refresher and its both exotic and old fashioned. like

    “The peachy porch” We like to drink our tea and lemonade on the front porch and peaches remind us of summer.

    I’m guessing if the ladies and gentlemen at the turn of last century included this cocktail with their scones and tiny sandwiches, the downstairs staff might not have to get dinner on the the table.

    When I was a teenager , my girlfriends and I would use the expression “peachy keen” to describe anything that was creative and fun, just like this cocktail! So, I think this drink should be called “Peach-Tea Keen”!

    Porch Swing Cooler- This drink is the essence of the South. Southern born and bred, a porch swing and a cool drink come to my mind.

    Peachy AP. Anything with ice tea and lemmonade is refreshing in the hot summer months, not to mention in down south.

    Arnold’s a Peach

    In memory of Arnold Palmer and his namesake drink.

    The name I suggest is “Peach Buzz” using play on words to well known term peach fuzz named after the skin of a peach. And buzz accounts for the bourbon and peach liquor.

    “Georgia on my Mind” – iced tea, lemonade, bourbon and peaches just evokes an image of sipping & sitting in a rocking chair on a lovely front porch on a summer afternoon.

    The Southern King

    This cocktail combines the Arnold Palmer, nicknamed “The King,” with bourbon and peach liqueur which conjure up images of Kentucky, Georgia, and sipping this refreshing beverage during a hot, Southern, summer afternoon. The mint sprig hints it may be a replacement for juleps at the Kentucky Derby!

    Is this where we enter the contest. My son and I share a love for Bourbon drinks. He suggested this name…”A Kentucky Breeze” since most Bourbons are made in Kentucky and the peach, lemonade, and iced tea are refreshing like a summer breeze!

    The Porch Sipper. Nothing better that a cool ice tea on the porch. Even better with a few surprise additions.
