Peachy Lemonade

When I first started dating my husband I was surprised when at restaurants he had long conversations with the waiters about their lemonade.  “It’s just lemonade, not vintage wine” I thought to myself as he quizzed the waiter on if it was premade or fresh squeezed, if they had flavored mix ins and if so which was the best. Ten minutes later he would finally order a drink.      I usually just ordered what he ordered.  I mean if you are going to spend ten minutes talking with the waiter about your drink I hope it is going to be amazing.  And sometimes they were amazing.  I’ve learned over the years that we like our lemonade tart and flavorful (no country time mix for us).

This summer I stumbled unto this Peach Lemonade recipe (from the back of the simply peach can) and it is fantastic, simple to make but super flavorful and refreshing to drink. 


Peachy Lemonade
½ c sugar
5 cups water
1 cup lemon juice (or 2 tablespoons Classic Lemonade or other unsweetened lemonade powder)
Heat sugar, simply peach and 1 cup water in small sauce pan until completely dissolved. 
In the meantime, juice 4-6 lemons to make 1 cup lemon juice. 
Combine Simply peach mixture and lemon juice in a pitcher.  Add remaining 4 cups cold water.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until cold.
