Finding The Best Peach Syrup . . . And A Recipe!

Let’s talk peaches.

Peach syrup, that is.

If you like peach lemonade or peach-sweetened tea, this syrup has your name on it. Popular in cocktails and Italian sodas, peach syrup is a classic summertime taste.

To find the best, we took several top brands and did a blind taste test, mixing up exact batches of peach lemonade. Which won over our peach enthusiasts with the best flavor? (If you like the peach syrup, you may enjoy strawberry coffee syrup as well._

Before we get to the winners, here is a recipe for Peach Iced Tea.

Best For Tea

Also great for Italian sodas
Loved this peach syrup—both in hot and iced tea. Tart peach flavor isn't too sweet. Also nice: GMO-free and made with cane sugar.

Best For Lemonade

Made in the USA
The robust flavor of this syrup makes a good pairing for the tartness of lemonade. And it works well for peach sweet tea, in our humble opinion. Caveat: artificially colored.

How We Pick Products To Recommend

We often turn to our readers (3 million strong!) to find products to recommend. We ask our parent readers for their favorites and consider their real-world experiences in our recommendations.

When we test a product, we always purchase it with our own monies. We do not take free samples, as we believe that compromises our independence.

We also fact check manufacturer information with our own measurements. If a maker claims a product weighs X pounds, we will weigh it to make sure. If the battery life is supposed to be six hours, we will see how it stands up in the real world.

In some cases, we will do interviews with experts in the field to get additional feedback on products.

To get hands-on time with products, we regularly meet one-on-one with gear companies and even tour manufacturing facilities. (When we do this, we pay our own travel expenses).

Why Trust Us

We’ve been rating and reviewing products for the home and families since 1994. We do extensive research, evaluating products with an eye toward quality, ease of use and affordability.

We make our living from affiliate commissions, but we always recommend what we think are the best bets for our readers (not the ones that are the most expensive). We are always looking for products that offer the best bang for the buck.

Our independence is a key reason why we have been doing this so long. As we mentioned above, when we purchase a product for hands-on testing, we do so with our own money.

Here’s another key point: we don’t take money from the brands we review. No free samples, no sponsors, no “partnerships.” Our work is 100% reader-supported!
