This peach lemonade gives me life. Like really. It’s the most refreshing, fun, and most beautiful drink I’ve ever made.
It’s got all the flavors of summer. Fresh peach, cool cucumber, lemon, mint, and of course BUBBLES! It’s really not nearly as fun without those bubbles.
Homemade lemonade is kind of where it’s at. Make a big pitcher and throw it in your fridge for the week to sip on. It definitely doesn’t last a week in my house. 2 days, max!
If you haven’t tried the peach/cucumber combination you haven’t lived. I mean, I guess that’s not really true. But it’s really, really really really good. Promise.
This lemonade is refreshing, fun, and beautiful.
For the Simple Syrup
- 1 cup water
- ¾ cup sugar
- 2–3 mint leaves
For the Lemonade
- 2 peaches (sliced,)
- 1–2 tablespoons water
- 1 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1 cucumber (sliced)
- ¾ cup sparkling water
- Begin by making the simple syrup. In a small pot add the water, sugar, and mint leaves. Bring to a boil, then cook for a couple minutes until sugar dissolves, stirring often. Remove from heat and set aside to let cool.
- In a blender, add almost all the peaches (leave a handful out for garnish) and water and blend until smooth. Strain peach puree to remove any large chunks.
- In a pitcher, add the simple syrup, lemon juice, and peach puree. Stir to combine. Add sliced peaches, cucumber and 5-6 mint leaves. Store in fridge until ready to serve. Just before serving add the sparkling water and serve over ice!
