Want a better version of your Long Island Iced Tea? Look no further: Boston seafood restaurant Legal Seafoods mixes up a Peach Tea Punch. It's a grownup, more sophisticated cocktail with the flavor of tea and a mix of rums, cognac, and peach liqueur. (Warning: The recipe is for an entire punch, not just one cocktail, so you know, don't drink the whole thing. It's no longer cool to black out after a Long Island Iced Tea.)

For an individual serving, fill a large wine glass completely with ice and 1 lemon wheel. Fill the glass 3/4 of the way full with the Peach Tea Punch batch and top with soda water. Roll the drink to incorporate the float of soda. Enjoy!

Peach Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Peach Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
