You will love how simple this peach lemonade is. You can be enjoying your delicious drink in just a few minutes. The best part is: no lemon squeezing!
Easy Peach Lemonade
This recipe was inspired by a peach lemonade I had at the FireSky Resort & Spa in Old Town, Scottsdale, Arizona. I think I tried every lemonade the resort had to offer. They were all fantastic but the peach lemonade was my VERY favorite. When I got home I decided that I needed to duplicate it so I could have my own little piece of FireSky with me whenever I wanted. It is the perfect balance of sweet and tart – I just want to drink it by the pool allllllll day!
Peach Lemonade the FAST way
This is my “cheater” way of making this peach lemonade because frankly, I hate squeezing lemons – takes too much time. I am fine using the concentrate because it is 20 times easier and when mixed with the peach, you won’t even notice. You will love how quick my method is. No waiting for hours for the peaches to cool, no refrigerating forever to get that perfect chill, and no squeezing dang lemons! You can be enjoying your lemonade in just a few short minutes.
What if I want to use ALL fresh ingredients?
If you prefer ALL fresh, you can easily adapt the recipe. It will just take a little bit longer. Here’s what you will do:
- Combine 1 cup of water and 1 1/2 cups of sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar dissolves.
- Cool to room temperature.
- In a large pitcher, stir together chilled syrup, 1 1/2 cups fresh squeezed lemon juice (seeds removed), and 7 cups water.
- Follow instructions for adding peaches below.
