Peaches add sweet, mellow roundness to traditional lemonade for a refreshing summertime beverage.  Stir in white rum or bourbon for the grown-ups.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped peaches
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice (about 6 lemons)
  • 4 cups ice
  • 1 peach, pitted and cut into 8 wedges

Preparation

Hands On: 12 Minutes
Total: 3 Hours, 42 Minutes

  1. 1. Combine the first 3 ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 3 minutes. Place peach mixture in a blender; let stand for 20 minutes. Remove center piece of blender lid (to allow steam to escape); secure blender lid on blender. Place a clean towel over opening in blender lid. Blend until smooth. Pour into a large bowl. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
  2. 2. Press peach mixture through a sieve over a bowl, reserving liquid; discard solids. Stir in lemon juice. Place 1/2 cup ice in each of 8 glasses. Pour about 2/3 cup lemonade into each glass; garnish each glass with 1 peach wedge.
