Homemade lemonade is taken to a new level with the addition of fresh peaches. It will be your new favorite summer drink!
Servings: 8 cups
- 2 cups peaches skins on, chopped (about 3 peaches)
- 4 cups water
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup fresh lemon juice (about 7 lemons)
- extra peaches and lemons for garnish
- ice for serving
Place chopped peaches, water, and sugar in a medium pot and place over medium-high heat. Heat until boiling and then reduce to simmer (uncovered) and cook for 5 more minutes. Remove from heat and let it stew for 10 minutes.
Place peach mixture in a blender. Place lid on blender but remove center cap to allow steam to exit (or else you could get a blowout!). Loosely cover hole it a kitchen towel and blend mixture on low. Increase speed to blend mixture completely. Transfer mixture to a bowl and place in refrigerator to cool down completely, about one hour.
Once mixture is cool, run through a mesh strainer to remove peach pulp. Place peach juice into pitcher and add lemon juice. Stir together. Add sliced peaches and lemon rounds as garnish, if desired.
To serve, add ice to a glass and pour lemonade into glass. Enjoy!
