Peach Lemonade

Lynn demonstrates how to make a delicious, refreshing Peach Lemonade that is perfect for this time of year when peaches are in season.  From Cooking Light and Pinterest.

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped peaches (3-4 peaches)
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice
  • ¼-1/2 cup additional water, if needed
  • 4 cups ice
  • 1 peach, cut into wedges for garnish, if desired

In a medium saucepan, add the peaches, water and sugar.  Bring to a boil over medium high heat.  Once boiling, reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 3 minutes.

Very carefully, our mixture into a blender or food processor and let stand for approximately 20 minutes.

If using a blender, take the center out of the lid and place lid tightly on blender, covering the top with a kitchen towel.  Blend or process until smooth.  Pour into a large container and refrigerate peach puree for approximately 3 hours.  If preparing a day ahead, you can refrigerate overnight.

After the peach puree has chilled, press the mixture through a sieve into a large container, reserving the liquid and discarding the solids.  Pour peach juice into a pitcher and add the lemon juice.  Stir until combined.  Taste and add ¼ - ½ cup water to dilute if too concentrated.

Serve by pouring approximately 2/3 cup of peach lemonade in a small glass over approximately ½ cup of ice.  Garnish with a peach wedge, if desired.
