Homemade Hey Y’alls: The Perfect Hard Southern Ice Tea

Hey Y’all (pun intended … LOL)!

A couple of weeks ago,  a few of us were over at Jillian’s for a shoot, and we really wanted to test out a homemade version of Hey Y’alls. If you haven’t heard of these delicious Summer drinks, then you’re in for a treat, but don’t drink too many … trust us, it can happen easily (they’re THAT good!). LOL!

Homemade Hard Ice Tea

We successfully made a big batch of this delicious hard iced tea and of course, we made sure to taste test it for you to make sure it was up to par!

So, today we are going to share how you can make this delicious cocktail right from the comfort of your own home! It’s quick and easy … and oh so refreshing on a hot summer day!

Homemade Hey Y'alls Vodka Ice Tea

Homemade Hey Y’alls

Recipe by From the Kitchen of Jillian Harris

Ingredients

  • 3 tea bags of your choice

  • 3 lemons

  • 13 ounces peach vodka

  • 1 peach

  • 8 cups water

  • Simple Syrup
  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1/2 cup boiled water

Directions

  • Simple Syrup
  • Combine 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup of sugar and bring to a boil and stirring until sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool.
  • Hey Y’alls
  • Bring 8 cups of water to a boil in a kettle and steep 3 tea bags of your choice (we used Teatly Pure Ceylon Tea). Once the tea has slightly cooled pour it into your preferred jug (we left the tea bags in, but you can take them out if you wish). It should fill up to about the halfway mark. Once the simple syrup has cooled pour it into the jug and stir. Fill the remainder of the jug with ice.
  • Pour in 13 ounces of peach vodka, if you are looking for a stiff drink you can pour in a little extra, really however much your heart desires. Squeeze in lemon juice from one lemon and stir.
  • Cut remaining lemons and peach into wedges and add to the pitcher.

Well there you have it, it’s as easy as that! We hope you LOVE this refreshing recipe just as much as we loved making (and drinking!) it … LOL!

    Hi, looks easy! But what flavor tea did you use in your batch? Can’t wait to try it!

    • Jillian Harris says:

      Hi Tina!! We just used Black Tea, I believe it was just called “blends of black tea” from the grocery store, but any kind of black tea should do! XO
