Anyway, I wanted to share a very good recipe for peach lemonade since I have already made a Limeade for Cherry limeade Slushies & Strawberry Lemonade. This drink is sweet, tart, and perfect for the hot (and sometimes dreadful) August days.
recipe: What Megan's Making
3 ripe peaches
1 cup sugar*
5 cups water
1 cup fresh lemon juice
1-2 cups water (optional)**
1. Peel (I found that a paring knife works best) and chop the peaches. Combine the peaches, sugar, and water in a medium pot and heat over medium-high heat for 10 minutes, or until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let it cool completely.
2. Blend the peach water in batches until smooth and strain through a fine mesh strainer into a pitcher. Add in the lemon juice and chill in the fridge. If you want a milder (less tart) lemonade, add in the extra water.
*The amount of sugar depends on how sweet your peaches are so you can start with 3/4 cup and then add more. The peaches we have been getting here smell and look great, but aren't as sweet as they usually are.
**The extra 1-2 cups of water is optional- it depends on how strong and tart you like your lemonade.
