Summer Day Sipping: Peach-Honey Lemonade
Izzy was in the mood to squeeze lemons and I had some peaches that had to be eaten.
15 minutes of squeezing, chopping, and blending is just enough time to create a lovely pitcher of summer.
1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 peaches, peeled, chopped, blended and strained
1/4 cup honey
1/8 cup sugar
3 cups water
1 cup of ice plus extra for glasses
thyme, mint or basil for garnish (optional)
1. Mix lemon juice with honey and sugar and stir vigorously.
2. Add water and stir again.
3. Stir in peaches and herbs.
4. Add ice.
5. Pour into glasses filled with ice and garnish with more fresh herbs.
