This Homemade Peach Lemonade Recipe has two easy-to-make parts, the Peach Simple Syrup, and the lemonade! Once the two combine, you get the perfect combination of peach and lemon flavor!
To make the peach simple syrup you’ll need:
- Peaches – Frozen peaches work best since they’re harvested and frozen when they’re at their peak of being fresh and ripe!
- Water – Used to thin the syrup out.
- Sugar – White granulated sugar sweetens the syrup up!
For the Peach Lemonade you’ll need:
- Water – Cold water is preferred since enjoying this drink chilled tastes best!
- Lemon Juice – Freshly squeezed!
- Peach Simple Syrup – Put that sweet homemade simple syrup to use to give this lemonade its peach flavor!
How To Make Peach Lemonade
- Simmer frozen peaches, one cup of water, and a cup of sugar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat.
- Reduce heat and continue to simmer the peach syrup. Then remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
- Pour the peach mixture through a fine-mesh sieve to separate out the peaches.
- Add the water, lemon juice, and simple syrup to a large pitcher with ice. Serve and enjoy!
Frequently Asked Questions
How To Store Peach Lemonade
Keep the lemonade in the refrigerator covered for up to 5 days! If there’s any leftover peach simple syrup you can store it in a sealed bottle in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
Can I Make This Lemonade Sweeter?
Yes, you can! Feel free to make it as sweet as you’d like, just add in the simple syrup until it reaches your desired sweetness.
How Can I Get The Most Juice Out Of The Lemons?
Try microwaving the lemons for 20 seconds. Then roll them between your palm and the counter for 10 seconds before cutting and juicing.
I also have this handheld citrus juicer that does a fast and effective job of getting all of the juice out of the lemons!
Can I Use Fresh Peaches In The Simple Syrup?
I don’t recommend it since fresh peaches can be harder to work with and don’t always have the best flavor depending on where you live.
