This drink belongs to the era of naming drinks after locations and all being variations of the Long Island Ice Tea. However, this is a fairly never variation, which is why is deserves mention. Here is one of the only published references to this drink:
B. Smith Cooks Southern-Style by Barbara Smith in 2009
“Serve over ice in tall glasses garnished with orange slices. Georgia Peach Iced Tea”
This drink should not have appeared so late and it is unclear why. Certainly, peach schnapps had reached it’s peak by the 1990 and location Long Island Iced Tea variations have long been in place. This drink should have appeared in some publication at least by 1985, although it might have, it is likely it did not.
This drink also has some confusion surrounding it. Many online references call this drink a “Georgia Peach Iced Tea”, which is very funny for two reasons. 1. The “Georgia Peach” drink itself is only “regional” to New York and is not considered a real drink. 2. You would not name a drink in this manner, for example: A “Fuzzy Navel” is Peach Schnapps and Orange Juice. The term “fuzzy” has always been associated with peaches, more specifically Peach Schnapps, so it makes no sense to use the name “Georgia” (which is also associated with Peaches) if you are going to include “Peach” in the drink name.
This would be the same as naming a drink an “Orange Navel” or Orange Orange. In this case of the “Georgia Peach” it is saying “Peach Peach”, this is very funny. What is worse is that “Fuzzy” was in place at this very same era. So why not call it a “Fuzzy Georgia Peach” or “Peach Peach Peach”.
This drink dates between 1987 – 2003 and contained at least as of then:
