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

How to Make It

Step 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.

Step 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.

The hardest part of the recipe was waiting the 3 hrs to refrigerate it! Mixed with a little bourbon and sprite makes for a very smooth cocktail

LOVED this lemonade. So tasty. I too added several more lemons. I also used my immersion blender instead of transferring it to my blender. Less mess and easier. saves a little on the dishes!

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.

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!

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: http://bit.ly/NpoZWb
