Minty Peach Lemonade is a tasty, refreshing drink combining classic homemade lemonade, mint simple syrup, and fresh peach puree…sure to become a new summertime favorite!
I am so excited about today’s recipe, y’all…I don’t know why peach lemonade never occurred to me before. Strawberry lemonade? Sure. Peach tea? Of course. But to take my favorite summer fruit and combine it with my favorite summer drink? Brilliant.
I promise that I’m not trying to toot my own horn here. It’s just that this particular combo of flavors turned out to be really, really yummy. And that is due, in no small part, to the fact that this peach-infused lemonade also incorporates mint.
There’s just something so delicious and so refreshing about adding mint to drinks, don’t you think? Whether it’s tea or punch or a cocktail, a little bit of mint packs a whole lot of flavor. My favorite way to use mint in beverages is to make a mint simple syrup with it. Unlike muddling your mint, making a simple syrup eliminates the concern of sucking up a fragment of a mint leaf through your straw. And I don’t know about you, but when I’m kicked back in my wooden rocking chair on my expansive front porch sipping on a tall glass of icy lemonade, the last thing I want to worry about is gagging on a mint leaf.
Okay, so I don’t really have a wooden rocking chair. Or an expansive front porch. Or the time to leisurely sit and sip on anything. But a gal can occasionally daydream that life is like a lazy summer day on a Country Time Lemonade commercial, right? And if bickering kids or a toddler whining to be picked up snaps her back to reality a bit too quickly, she can just channel serenity for a moment longer by sucking down her Minty Peach Lemonade with a little more vigor.
Or if all else fails, I hear it’s good with a splash of vodka, too. 😉
