Monday Munchies - Raspberry Peach Lemonade


I thoroughly enjoyed the summery weather this weekend! I even put on my bathing suit and laid out in the sun for a couple of hours. With the weather finally starting to warm up, I think it's about time for us to start getting ready with delicious summery recipes. What is better than a tall glass of cool lemonade on a hot day? Today I am sharing a refreshing and yummy raspberry peach lemonade. Thanks to The Chunky Chef for this great recipe. Enjoy!


Raspberry Peach Lemonade

Ingredients:

Raspberry Peach Puree-

  • 4 fresh peaches, pitted and diced

  • 1 cup fresh raspberries

  • 1 1/4 cups water

Simple Syrup-

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/2 cup water

Lemonade-

  • 7 cups cold water

  • 1 1/4 cups fresh lemon juice (approx. 4 lemons)

  • Ice cubes

  • Additional raspberries for garnish, optional

  • Additional peach slices for garnish, optional

  • Mint sprigs for garnish, optional

Directions:

  • Add diced peaches, raspberries, and water to a food processor or blender and process until pureed.

  • Place a sieve over a large mixing bowl and pour the peach and raspberry puree into the sieve. Use the back of a large spoon to push the puree around so the liquid falls through the sieve and seeds/skin stay inside the sieve.

  • Discard the seeds/skin and set the mixing bowl with the puree liquid aside.

  • To make the simple syrup, mix the sugar and water together in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat until the sugar dissolves into the water, stirring occasionally. Boil for about 3 minutes until the liquid has become syrupy. Set aside to cool slightly.

  • To make the lemonade, mix together the water, lemon juice, and ice cubes in a pitcher. Stir to combine. Pour in the cooled simple syrup and peach and raspberry liquid. Stir to combine again.

  • Store covered in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Add the garnishes if desired.


What is your favorite summery drink?

Until next time,

Amanda
