Peach Lemonade

    This recipe is fantastic! The consistency is a bit thick, so we mixed it with a little diet lemon-lime soda and it was like a fancy sparkling peach lemonade (and it makes it stretch a little further too). We hope to mix it with champagne soon for a grown-up lemonade. I HIGHLY recommend this recipe. It is so worth the effort!

    As other reviewers noted, it's a bit thick. But we "watered it down" with a splash of sparkling water and some honey bourbon, Yum!

    We loved this. All that's needed is a quick simmer, blend, squeeze and strain. It's simple and so much better than a frozen can of high fructose corn syrup. We found it thick too, but a quick second strain with a couple layers of cheesecloth added and it was perfect. The whole family loves it. You can read my full review at:

    Yum! I added some bourbon, lots of ice and stirred with a spring of mint. Lovely summer cocktail.

    Fantastic! I loved this recipe - used a mix of super ripe & juicy peaches with nectarines (~6-7 total) and 5 large lemons with a splash of lemon concentrate just to tame the sweetness. I let the whole mix sit overnight prior to straining the next day, and poured a bit of honey whiskey in each glass for the grown-ups! Wow this recipe is definitely a keeper and I love that I know what ingredients went into my drink instead of buying processed lemonade. Incredibly refreshing and not too sweet - super EASY - will definitely make again and again!

    Great use of "seconds" peaches from the farmstand -- the kind orchards sell for less because they're not pretty or too ripe to hold. Be sure to strain after blending or you'll end up with thick peach nectar rather than peach juice. Taste before serving; ours was a bit too sweet so added two more lemons to balance.

    Slightly more effort to make than regular lemonade but totally worth it. It was delight in a glass. Perfect for BBQ's on hot summer days (or anytime really!) Adults and children alike loved it. Has a thicker consistency then regular lemonade. I added about 3/4c of water to the finished product and felt that did the trick to tame the sweetness and thickness.
