Summer is here, and time to stay cool and refreshed. I found this lovely vintage 70's lemon tray by Keswick, and this fun and flowy peach dress that inspired me to combine the two fruits to create an easy homemade peach lemonade.
Many recipes call for 1-2 cups of sugar, and for that I cannot stand or create something overly sweet. This recipe uses enough sugar to reduce the tartness of the lemon juice all while maintaining connection to it's peachy-fruit flavor.
Simple and sweet, this is the perfect recipe for summer picnics or to enjoy your traditional lemonade with a twist!
If you want to reduce the sweetness or dilute it anymore, just add a bit more water closer to four cups in total. Enjoy!

Homemade Peach Lemonade
Total Time: 10-20 minutes
Serves 2 large glasses
1 large peach, sliced
3/4 cup lemon juice ( 2 large lemons)
1/4 cup sugar
3.5-4 cups water
In a pot, bring the peach, 1.5 cups water and sugar to a simmer. Simmer for 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and remove the peach flesh. Use a fine mesh strainer if needed. Let the water cool and then add in, and mix, the lemon juice and 2 to 2.5 cups more water.
Serve over ice! This tastes best when cooled entirely as this brings out the fruit flavor.
