do you dare eat a peach? YES!If you ever take a trip down to the American South (where I’m originally from) in the month of August, two things will strike you as extraordinary.

First of all, it is hot- and not that cute little “dry heat” you hear about – but an immediate sweat-inducing humid heat.

And the second is peaches.

Millions of peaches.

It is my opinion that if it wasn’t for the latter no one could stand the former.

So to celebrate our love for peaches, they gave this fruit an entire month. That’s right, August is officially National Peach Month!

To commemorate the occasion, give you the my latest tea cocktail, the Carolina Peach. Bon ApeTEA!
