Raspberry Peach Lemonade


I found this recipe on Eat, Drink, Love and made it for the party this weekend. Loved it! It's the perfect refreshing Summer drink. It is VERY tart as written, even with the full amount of sugar suggested, so if you like a sweeter lemonade you might want to increase the sugar. It's a little time consuming, but really easy!


Original recipe found here.

In a medium sauce pan, add 1 cup of water and the sugar or agave nectar. Heat on medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Reduce heat and add sliced peaches and raspberries and simmer for about 5 minutes. 



Pour the fruit mixture into a blender. Puree the fruit until smooth. Let cool completely. 



Once cooled, pour the fruit puree through a fine mesh strainer into a pitcher. 


Add the lemon juice and the rest of the water. Stir to combine and serve over ice.


Ingredients: 

3 medium peaches, peeled and sliced
6 oz. raspberries
6 cups water
1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar (I suggest at least 1/2 cup, more if you like it sweeter)
1 cup fresh lemon juice (6-7 lemons)

Directions: 


  1. In a medium sauce pan, add 1 cup of water and the sugar or agave nectar. Heat on medium heat until the sugar dissolves. reduce heat and add sliced peaches and raspberries and simmer for about 5 minutes. 
  2. Pour the fruit mixture into a blender. Puree the fruit until smooth. Let cool completely. 
  3. Once cooled, pour the fruit puree through a fine mesh strainer into a pitcher. Discard the solids (or save them and freeze them like I did because they would be really yummy in yogurt or whatever) 
  4. Add the lemon juice and the rest of the water. Stir to combine and serve over ice. Enjoy!
