Peach Lemonade

Peach Lemonade | 2 Cookin Mamas Fresh & fruity, this refreshing lemonade is all you need to beat the summertime heat. #recipe

Wow! That week of vacation went by so fast! I wish I was still there enjoying the powder white sand and warm gulf waters but I guess I have to return to reality sometime. 🙁 I think the boatloads of laundry will certainly help me do that!

It’s still hot here at home (who would have thought South Florida would be hot in July – jk) so cold drinks need to be on tap all the time. I usually have flavored waters on hand such as Strawberry Mint Spa Water or Lemon Cucumber Water and for dinner there is always Raspberry Iced Tea but during my trip I picked up a new refreshing drink to chill with, Peach Lemonade.

This drink has a lemonade base, with about half as much sugar than the normal lemonade but, with the addition of tasty ripe peaches, the sweetness level is right on point. I can’t think of anything better to drink mid-summer than a flavored lemonade, can you? And this Peach Lemonade looks so pretty you will definitely want to serve it at your next get-together.

Make it a little ahead of time so the flavors can mingle then add the fruit right before serving. I like to garnish mine with plenty of peach and lemon slices and a touch of mint. Keep cool and enjoy!
